Otto Bock Healthcare : 13 March, 2013  (Company News)
Ottobock is launching a UK-wide educational tour to promote the latest technical innovations in gait rehabilitation.


The 2013 Educational Roadshow will cover a range of topics, including stance control, advanced orthotics practice and functional electrical stimulation. The free-to-attend workshops for physiotherapists, orthotists and neurological rehabilitation consultants will take place in locations in Scotland, Wales, and England until August 2013.

 

Roadshow attendees will gain an insight into Ottobock's stance control systems, including the E-Mag Active and Freewalk, and the latest advances in surface and implantable Functional Electrical Stimulation systems, such as MyGait and ActiGait. The event will also include lectures and workshops on the pros and cons of stance control systems available across the market from a balanced clinical perspective, and provide an overview of the treatment process. Workshops will provide attendees with the confidence to select the correct patient for the treatment, and offer a first step towards full certification for the E-Mag Active system.

Scotland - Friday 22nd March at Peebles Hydro, Innerleithen Road, Peebles



Staffordshire - Friday 21st June at Alton Towers Resort, Farley Lance, Alton

"These events allow us to impart knowledge and understanding to those on the front line of orthotics, and offer attendees the chance to gain insight into how these technologies can help appropriate patients with the confidence and support to regain their mobility and independence."
