HLT204 Clinical Foundations in Orthotics


Building upon skills introduced in HLT102 this course introduces principles of orthotic treatment of the lower limb and spine in musculoskeletal conditions. You will learn how orthoses are designed, how they interact with the body to control movement, and skills related to the assessment of and manufacture of an orthosis. Projects are centred on enhancing psychomotor skills and familiarity with materials/techniques used in orthotics through the fitting of prefabricated and custom-fabricated orthoses.
