Orthotic Treatment Through the Ages

Event Date:

Nov 12, 2021 • 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT(-04:00)

Approved for 2.0 CEUs

Orthotic treatment through the ages will bring together thought leaders to discuss the various orthotic theories as well as the orthotic manufacturing process and how to simplify your workflow while leaving the power in your hands.

The prescribing and use of foot orthotics have come a long way since they began to be more widely used for a wide range of foot and lower limb pathologies. The theory that underpins the foot orthotic decision making process has changed substantially and continues to evolve. The research evidence that underpins their use is also accumulating and is not always compatible with that evolving theory(s). The manufacturing process has also evolved from multiple different methods of producing the negative model and then the positive model required for the production. There are multiple possible pathways to get to the final product. That process has both become more sophisticated and dumbed down.

As 3D printing is disrupting the manufacturing industry, the custom-foot-orthotic industry is no exception. This session will aim to provide an understanding of how 3D printing technology works, the materials available, and the new design possibilities enabled by additive manufacturing. These topics provide an understanding to explore the potential benefits of using 3D printing for the manufacture of custom foot orthotics.
