AFOs: Become an Expert on AFO Customization
Allard "prefabricated" AFOs are approved as L1932 "custom-fitted" orthoses. Although they are "prefabricated," to abide by the code and provide optimum functional results and assure product integrity, customization to meet individual patient needs is required. This course details how to assess patient deficits and anatomical needs to determine and fabricate the modifications required to address those needs.

Prosthetic Management of Partial Foot Amputations
The partial foot patient faces a number of issues, including pressure, friction and shearing forces in their residual foot. They also face a lack of propulsion and a significant acquired limb length deficit secondary to their partial foot amputation. This course is the first and only course that teaches how to manage all those patient issues in one comprehensive program to preserve the residual foot and to restore propulsion during gait.
