New OPGA MAS courses scheduled

Jim Andreassen

Well, it happened again! Our MAS course just held at Northwestern University
Prosthetic and Orthotic Center last weekend was a huge success. The
response continues to be overwhelming so we have added more courses for this
spring and summer. We have held 4 seminars thus far and have approximately
150 clinicians trained in this new and innovative socket design. Following
are courses scheduled thus far:
March 5-6, 2005
April 2-3, 2005
July 19-20, 2005
July 22-23, 2005
The March and April seminars are already sold out, and we just scheduled the
July seminars, but I’m sure they will fill up quickly. If you are
interested, please contact us right away.
Two tiers of learning will be offered at the course:

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

* Tier II – “Observation” – Full two-day seminar which includes all course
materials, observation of patient evaluation, but no hands-on participation.
There will be 2 observers “teamed up” with each hands-on attendee.

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

If you would like more information about the course, please contact me via
email at [email protected] or call Kelly Weidman at 800-214-6742.

Thank you all.
