In this workshop, the entire production process of an orthosis is put into practice by producing up to two AFOs. The basis is either the positive cast for the treatment of a patient or a foam model from FIOR & GENTZ. Depending on what you choose, the following applies:
- You produce a positive cast of a patient's leg and bring it to the workshop. The negative cast must be produced with e-Cast. In exceptional cases, you can also bring only a negative cast. If you should not have an e-Cast at your disposal, please choose the alternative “We produce a sample orthosis based on a prepared foam model”.
- A foam model is provided by FIOR & GENTZ to produce a sample orthosis. The participant will receive an offer for a NEURO SWING system ankle joint in 14mm.
This workshop is recommended for orthotists/orthopaedic mechanics with experience in producing orthoses.
This workshop can be attended by a maximum of six persons. Per workshop, two AFOs can be produced. Two teams with up to three persons produce one AFO each. If the teams are smaller and two orthoses are produced, it is possible to attend as onlooker.
