Students in this course will receive instruction on the assessment, formulation, implementation,and follow up of an orthotic treatment plan for common foot and/or ankle disorders affecting pediatric, adult and geriatric populations. Lab activities with patient models will allow the student to correlate clinical findings with evidence based practice to synthesize the significance of the appropriate choice of components, principles, material properties, and medical management. The student will interact with multiple orthotic systems.
