The PrimeCare O&P Networkâ€™s western scientific symposium attracted attention and attendance from around the globe. Nearly 100 attendees and exhibitors gathered at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City to sample PrimeFare Westâ€™s educational offerings presented by some of the industryâ€™s distinguished leaders.
More than 50% took advantage of certification opportunities offered as part of on-site manufacturer-accredited courses on the i-Limb Prosthetic Hand, the E-MAG Active Orthosis and the SensorWalk Orthosis.
Pedorthists were enthusiastic about a CPed educational track that focused on complex and challenging pathologies and featured National Pedorthic Servicesâ€™ Dennis Janisse.
Ty Oswald of In Sight Orthotics & Prosthetics, a regular PrimeFare guest, pronounced this the best symposium so far and Becker Orthopedicâ€™s Russ Hornfisher also saluted the symposiumâ€™s consistent growth.
Yu-Lin Nichole Cheng crossed the Pacific to take advantage of PrimeFare Westâ€™s diversity.
â€œIâ€™m glad to be able to see many new orthoses, prostheses, materials and equipment here and to have the opportunity to learn from recent research on subjects like pediatric gait,â€� Cheng said in a news release. â€œI appreciate the exposure to new ideas and the opportunity to share experiences with others in this field.â€�
