Irving, TX (PRWEB) May 19, 2010 -- Advanced Arm Dynamics (AAD), the nation’s leading provider of upper extremity rehabilitation services recently played a role in the 30th Annual Texas History Day Contest; albeit, one behind the scenes.

When the business was approached by a group of 8th graders from a Texas middle school who were creating a play on the history of innovation in prosthetics to perform as their submission for the contest, the AAD team was more than happy to help. They worked with the students over a period of months, which included showing them various prosthesis and how they work, introducing them to patients, providing a tour of the facilities and lab, and even lending them four prosthetic arms to use when performing their play.

“I was so impressed by Shelby Johnson’s initiative to reach out to the staff at AAD for support with her presentation,” said Rob Dobson, CPO at AAD. “My main goal was to provide information on how these prosthetic devices work and how they can benefit those individuals that use them. In addition, I wanted to show the overall process of getting a prosthesis to a patient and tried to emphasize that in order to set a patient up for success, a team approach is a must.”

After first winning their school and the Dallas Fort-Worth regional competitions, the students were among the 1,000 students out of 45,000 who were allowed to compete at the state-level this past weekend at the 30th Annual Texas History Day Contest, the official affiliate of the National History Program, which was held at the Texas State History Museum in Austin. The students received 4th place out of the 45,000 state competitors. The theme of this year’s Texas History Day was “Innovation in History.” For their submissions, students in 6th through 12th grade had a choice of submitting performances, Web sites, historical papers, documentaries or exhibits in accordance with the theme.
