OPGA opens Women’s Only MAS course to Men!

Jim Andreassen

Because of a lack of response for our planned “Women’s Only” MAS course
scheduled for July 8-9 at Northwestern University P&O Center (NUPOC), OPGA
has decided to open the course up to the men as well. We currently have 9
women signed up, so there are plenty of openings available for both genders!
This will be our 24th course with nearly 500 clinicians having been trained
in this exciting and innovative transfemoral socket design.

Two tiers of learning are offered at the seminars:

* Tier I – “Hands-On” – Full two-day seminar, which includes patient
evaluation with casting, modifications, and two test sockets. Attendee is
encouraged to provide own patient model and his/her travel arrangements.

Tier II – “Observation” – Full two-day seminar that includes all course
materials, observation of patient evaluation, but no hands-on participation.
There will be 2-3 observers “teamed up” with each hands-on attendee who will
assist in all aspects of the casting, modifying and fitting of the test

For those not familiar with the M.A.S. socket design, it is a revolutionary
new socket design created by Marlo Ortiz from Guadalajara, MX. To read more
about the socket design, read a recent article in the O&P Edge at:

If you would like more information about the course, please give us a call
