Orthotic Fabrication Mobilisation Course - Sydney MAY 2021
The focus of this two-day course is on the design and fabrication of mobilisation orthoses. A dynamic format using lectures, case studies, demonstrations and hands-on practical activities will help participants to improve their theoretical knowledge and proficiency in the fabrication of mobilisation orthoses. These skills will be used to master clinical reasoning and equip participants with the expertise required to successfully use mobilisation orthoses in clinical practice. Participants will have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of thermoplastic materials fabricating numerous orthoses for mobilising the fingers, thumb, and wrist. Designs for mobilising orthoses for the forearm and elbow will be discussed but do not include a practical fabrication session.
It is not a prerequisite that participants have completed the Splint/Orthotic Fabrication Immobilisation Course, but it is strongly recommended. The course is designed for therapists with some experience treating persons with upper limb dysfunction. Participants must have a sound understanding of the principles of immobilisation splinting and be able to fabricate a wrist immobilisation orthosis in 15 minutes. Competency in the use of thermoplastic splinting materials is essential. This enables the practical sessions to focus on fabrication of the mobilising components. This course is not open to students and is not recommended for newly graduated therapists.
This is a certificate workshop, so participants are encouraged to undertake the assessment that will allow them to claim 50 CPD hours for attendance at a two-day course, successful completion requires a pass in all 3 assessment components.
Participants not wishing to undertake assessment may claim 20 hours credit for attendance at the two-day course. For those wishing to apply to become an Accredited Hand Therapist with the AHTA, this is a core course and successful assessment and completion of all components is a requirement for your application.
