COURSE DESCRIPTION
Custom orthotic fabrication can be a difficult skill to master, especially in the setting of a traumatic injury. It is not only a science, but an art that requires time, patience and practice. Clinicians must understand the theoretical principles of orthotic fabrication as well as develop an understanding of the appropriate use of a variety of materials. Special consideration must also be taken with the presence of pin fixation as the therapist customizes the orthosis to fit each individual and unique hand.

The goal of this one-day course is to develop intermediate skills in orthotic fabrication of the hand and wrist. The majority of time will be spent fabricating orthoses and refining technical skill. The goal is to pre¬pare the learner to immediately apply this newly acquired skill into their practice.

Class size is limited with a high teacher-to-student ratio. This allows ample opportunity for students to ask ques¬tions and learn from experienced hand therapists. Students are provided with instructional handouts and videos for independent review. Participants will be required to complete a post-test after the workshop.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this course, the participant should be able to:
• Understand the purpose and rationale for orthotic application
• Identify three bio-mechanical principles of orthotic fabrication
• Select appropriate material for specific conditions
• Fabricate at least 3 static orthoses and 1 dynamic orthosis
• Solve orthosis design according to unique patient presentation

TARGET AUDIENCE
This is an intermediate-level workshop designed for Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapist Assistants and Physical Therapy Assistants.
