On-Demand Webinar | Gary Wall & Richard Miltenberger

Create a carbon AFO with a digital workflow

Additionally, you can earn 1,25 CEU's by watching the webinar and answering a short quiz afterwards. *What are CEUs and what do I need them for?

You want to benefit from the best of two worlds? Scan instead of plaster casting. Do a joint angle correction and take measurments with a few clicks? Store your data digital for an easy documentation? Yet still use your preferred production technique for the devise? 

Then let Richard Miltenberger, CPO & Gary Wall, CPO & clinic manager show you in this on-demand webinar how you can combine digital methods like scanning, digital modification and carving with building a carbon AFO in the traditional way. 

Using digital technology and advanced pre-preg carbon fiber techniques, CPOs like Gary Wall are working to make this type of AFO more common in labs across the country. In this 60-minute on-demand webinar we will cover the scanning process, modifying the positive model, and creating the final prepreg orthosis - including a patient fitting.

*A CEU (continuing education units) is a measurement unit used in the United States in education and training programs. In some professions in the U.S. it is required to earn a certain number of CEUs per five-year continuing education cycle to maintain the license to practice.
