IIOP was thrilled to welcome the team from Blatchford to tour the facility and meet with the students this week. Blatchford is one of the foremost prosthetic and orthotic manufacturers with a focus on research and education, as well as patient success. They caught up with the students while they were fitting their custom knee-ankle-foot orthoses and were even willing to break social distancing for a moment to take a group photo. Blatchford will be returning to expose the students to their line of prosthetic knees and feet for their transfemoral prosthetics projects in the coming months. We appreciate their support and welcome them back always.
The mission of the International Institute of Orthotics and Prosthetics (IIOP) is to provide comprehensive academic programs that promote student success in a manner for which they can utilize the acquired knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to be competent and ethical practitioners of allied health.
