HLT204 Clinical Foundations in Orthotics

Building upon skills introduced in HLT102 and HLT105, this course introduces principles of orthotic treatment of the lower limb 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.
