O&P professionals had many chances to partake in hands-on experiences throughout this year’s event. Many practitioners worked with 3-D printed prostheses for the first time during the event’s 3-D printing workshop, which allowed participants to build their own devices. Meanwhile, technicians competed over several days to earn the title of “Fastest Technician in the West” by assembling an articulating AFO as quickly as possible. Participants also had the chance to learn about new technologies while browsing the exhibit hall and ask their Medicare questions in person during educational sessions.
