Re: Orthopedic Tech

The Kogans

As an ABC certified Practitioner, I takes all casts. A good cast will give you good results. I modify my own prosthetics molds, because it does rely on my expertise with seeing the patient. However, Orthotic molds can (standard
ones) have buildups placed in the same key locations every time. An orthotic technician can be taught to perform these modifications as well as the plaster smoothing process, pouring and stripping of the molds. If I have an unusual case, I’ll do it myself, but otherwise my tech handles it.
