The continuous developments in modern technology has made it clear that the next pivotal step for advancing orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) is to embrace a digital solution. More specifically, the process of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) can be used to digitize the standard O&P fabrication process. It gives you an edge in working more efficiently, providing better patient care, and producing highly accurate orthotic and prosthetic devices. With proper training and education, CAD/CAM technology can be easy to learn for any clinician or technician. This is why we developed the Launchpad Program, to digitally enable current and future O&P professionals for the future.
This course is structured as a weekly series that will help you understand the fundamentals of this digital process and how it is used in O&P. You will be given the opportunity to learn and use Canfit(TM), the leading O&P design software in the field, to create and rectify different custom orthotic and prosthetic devices. Vorum's interactive exercises and assessments will help you cultivate a clear perspective of the tangible advantages of utilizing CAD/CAM technologies.
By the end of this program, your newly developed skills will be another valuable tool to incorporate into your O&P toolkit.
