Event Date:

June 27, 2021
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT(-04:00)

New technology can be confusing and leave you with questions as to how it can be applied in your practice. This course will give you the framework for selecting the right carbon fiber AFO based on our patient’s etiology and gait abnormalities. You will understand the logic behind why carbon fiber is superior to plastic and how it can be used to treat virtually any problem you come across in your practice. With real-life case presentations, you will see the difference. You will be able to offer a lightweight, durable, energy return design that has a minimal presence in the shoe that your patients will love.
