We’re looking forward to another fantastic Academy Annual Meeting! Be sure to visit us in the exhibit hall at booth #211.

Technical Workshops:
Improving Comfort and Suspension by Regulating Limb Temperature
Duration: 2 hours
Common prosthetic interface materials have insulating properties that can lead to excessive perspiration, patient discomfort, skin irritation, and loss of suspension. WillowWood’s SmartTemp® Liner addresses these issues through innovative use of a Phase Change Material (PCM). The PCM particles in the liner absorb heat generated by the amputee’s body, then release the stored heat as the skin cools. This workshop will examine the material properties, clinical applications, and research outcomes for this liner, and will introduce the newest addition to the Alpha family.

CAD/CAM Modifications Design Essentials
Duration: 4 hours
This highly informational, hands-on workshop examines how CAD technology enables O&P technicians, assistants and practitioners to easily modify scanned images in preparation for fabrication.  Featured in the workshop is OMEGA® CAD Software by WillowWood.  Emphasis is placed on its user interface, workspace and workflow tools. Attendees will be working directly with CAD software throughout the course.
Guest Presenter: Roger Wagner, CPO
