Hi everyone!

We hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. It is hard to believe we are almost done with our second semester here at IIOP! Orthotic Management of the Lower Limb 1 is going well! We are just about halfway through and have already completed 2 projects with 3 more to go. Last week we finished up our accommodative foot orthotics and it was so cool to walk in our partners foot inserts! Being able to give each other feedback on these projects is really helping us work on our fabrication and patient interaction skills. We also finished up our UCBL project and it was really cool to compare the first project to this one as the UCBL is more rigid and can apply more corrective forces to the patient’s foot. This week we have our midterm exam, and we are starting our non-articulating AFO project, so check back soon for more updates.

Thanks for reading,

Sam Bousman
