Digitalisation, new technologies and the shortage of skilled workers are future challenges in orthopaedic technology as well as orthopaedic footwear technology. Various technologies (such as scanning and fabrication methods) are already being used in the fitting process. Digitalisation also plays a role with regard to quality standards. Participants learn about the advantages and disadvantages of technologies through critical observation, discussion and fitting examples on the basis of digital fitting processes. They learn how future technologies need to meet the needs of the industry even more effectively to ensure the optimal fitting of patients with orthopaedic devices.
