Free online education available for OTs, physios and orthopaedic technicians
Mobility and rehabilitation specialist Ottobock is offering free e-learning modules, videos and tutorials for clinical and technical personnel to continue training in orthopaedic technology and therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic through the Ottobock Global Academy.
Prosthetists, occupational therapists (OTs), physiotherapists and orthopaedic technicians can choose from a broad range of digital courses covering topics such as fitting prostheses, gait training and adjusting orthoses.
Christiane Rauch, Head of the Global Academy, commented: “Especially during the time of the corona pandemic, it is important to support our worldwide customers in the best possible way.
“We now offer our well-known, comprehensive clinical learning program digitally, without access restrictions, via an online training portal. By doing this, we ensure that the education can be continued globally, independent of time or place.”
The online platform offers four training options:
- Product e-learning: To learn about treatment methods and Ottobock products
- Educational videos: Learners will discover content about fitting and adjusting Ottobock products as well as how to optimally train with users with Ottobock products
- Online live sessions: These focus on prosthetics, orthotics, materials and therapy
- O&P knowledge: Serves as a learning platform for employees to achieve or improve orthopaedic knowledge
Content such as “Clinical gait analysis & intervention” or “Seating solutions with cushions from Ottobock” offer the possibility to refresh, enhance knowledge or discover new topics.
In addition, the live online sessions connect participants on a global level so that they can share their experiences, exchange questions and increase their skills.
