Orthopedic Footwear Modifications – biomechanics meet practical application
Content: The optimal treatment with adaptations (modifications) to orthotic footwear is only possible by tracking clear and comprehensible treatment objectives. Biomechanical competences as well as technical and orthopedic skills play an important role in their formulation and implementation in daily practice.
In the course "Orthotic Footwear Modifications – biomechanics meet practical application" we will focus on:
1. how types of biomechanical stress differ in various kinds of pathologies and influences gait characteristics,
2. which treatment objectives could be addressed by Orthotic Footwear Modifications to meet the clinical needs of the individual user
3. and the importance of biomechanical measurements in daily practice to achieve the treatment objectives.
