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.
