OTWorld 2022: Media Library With More Than 80 Expert Contributions Available Online
We invite you to dip into the world of prosthetics and orthotics. The OTWorld media library will still be available until 31 July with selected contributions from more than 300 international speakers on outstanding orthopaedic treatment methods. It was impressively demonstrated at the OTWorld 2022 International Trade Show and World Congress from 13 to 15 May in Leipzig how modern orthopaedic treatment and care can change people's lives.
From TMR and osseointegration to examination techniques for stumps and materials science in technical orthopaedics, the content in the media library highlights modern approaches to patient care. The videos can be watched from the comfort of your own desk or while you are out and about. Alongside the recordings from the congress of the leading world industry get-together, which are available for a fee, some content is also available free of charge including the 27 exhibitor Innovation Talks, six Branch-Policy Forums and 16 contributions to the Massive Open Online Course.
Highlights From the Congress Programme
Selected highlights from the World Congress can be viewed in the media library after the event. This includes the full programme from Halls 1 and 2, including the four keynote lectures.
This year's keynote speakers included, for example, Prof Kenton Kaufmann from the USA who came to Leipzig with a lecture on "Generating stronger evidence in limb loss and preservation – the establishment of a US registry" . Prof Bertolt Meyer spoke about "Digitalisation: Opportunities and Risks for People with Impairments" . Univ Prof Dr Aszmann and Dr scient. med. Agnes Sturma shed light on their topic in a tandem keynote, "TMR and Osseointegration" , and Prof Dr-Ing. Sami Haddadin presented on "Intelligent Control and Learning in Prosthetics" .
In the practice-oriented lecture series of the satellite symposium " Arm Prosthetics – Various Treatments in Everyday Life" , experts present case studies with diverse treatments from everyday practice – from an osseointegrated prosthetic system on the upper arm with TMR control to myoelectric transhumeral treatments without TMR and osseointegration.
The overall theme of panel discussions at the Branch-Policy Forums was "Responsibility". Experts from politics, science and medicine as well as health insurers and social and industry organisations discussed the value of healthcare in a world in crisis mode, as well as opportunities for digitalisation. Debates included: "Qualitätsgesicherte und fachgerechte Hilfsmittelversorgung in Deutschland: Wer steht in der Verantwortung?" as well as "Verantwortung übernehmen: Wie steht es um die digitale Versorgung und unser Mindset eHealth?" and are available to view in the media library.
