Understand fundamental principles of CAD/CAM usage in orthotics and prosthetics
Recognize Vorum's product capabilities and the benefits they provide for clinicians and technicians
Use Canfit with real digital patient shapes or measurements: build-ups and reductions, merge template shapes, design trimlines
Implement strategies from fabrication on foam with traditional O&P fabrication
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 for patients. 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 (Professional Academic Development) 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™, 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.
