Experts OnDemand: Troubleshooting Orthotic Challenges Using Innovative Conventional Solutions

Description

This course will provide treatment options using conventional orthosis components and fabrication techniques. Conventional joints and bars have been used for decades without much advancement in their design or use until recently. The innovative solutions will help technicians and clinicians develop unique solutions for patients with specific needs. The course will provide basic orthosis design and construction techniques as well as introduction to newer styles of joints that have specific advantages for end users. The treatment options presented in this course will help patients maintain or regain their mobility.

Objectives

After successfully completing this training, attendees will be able to:

  • Provide basic knowledge of conventional joint bar systems and how they can be fabricated to achieve optimal results.
  • Course participants will be able to determine what unique needs a patient may have and how to best apply conventional joints to those needs.
  • Course participants will gain knowledge of what options are available to provide better outcomes using better fabrication techniques and updated conventional joint systems.
