Proper use of one's body and the safe use of tools are key to ensuring an injury-free work environment as an orthotist or prosthetist. However, in order to safely treat patients and use fabrication tools, those people in the profession who are smaller-framed or who struggle with upper body strength often find themselves making adjustments to their work station or styles. In this panel-style live online classroom, you'll hear from experienced practitioners in the field on how to make adaptations for using your body effectively to both treat patients and ensure your own safety.
