Manufacture of Lower Limb Orthoses in PP
What this training is about?
This training is about the manufacturing/fabrication of lower limb orthoses with PP ICRC technology
What this training is not about?
First and above all it is not a clinical training.
Mostly in the morning on subjects covered during the day.
If one picture is worth 1000 words how many words a live demonstration is worth?
It will consist of fabricating lower limb orthoses.
You will work in pair, taking the cast from another participant
You will have to manufacture 3 AFO orthoses, 1 PTKO fracture brace orthosis, 1 KAFO & 1 KO orthoses.
Please note that if the work is not consider acceptable, you will have to redo the work. This should not affect, in any way, the total number of orthoses to fabricate but it might impede with your coffee/tea brake and lunch time.
What about the upper extremity orthoses?
For most orthotechnicians doing orthoses, the lower limb orthoses constitute 90 to 95% of their work. Therefore, we will stick with what is most often require.
A very important part of the training as you will need to take a rest and to replenish with carbohydrate.
Remember, the brakes are of 15 minutes plus or minus five minutes (not 30 to 45 minutes) both in the morning and the afternoon.
