  • $995.00


As new technologies become available, O & P professionals are looking for better ways to meet the needs of their patients. 3D Printing is a new way to design and fabricate custom orthotics to meet the needs of patients in the 21st century. This class will introduce the student to scanning and different design software that allows the student to custom design devices for their individual patients. 

The student will learn to use various types of scanners and design software to allow for the custom creation and fabrication of custom orthotics for both upper and lower extremity.

This class is worth 40 Scientific Category I CE credits for ABC Orthotists, Assistants, and Technicians. The class is worth 40 Category I CE credits for all BOC practitioners.
