Digitalisation is at the heart of orthopaedic footwear technology
At this year's OTWorld, 180 of the more than 570 exhibitors will present their products in the field of orthopaedic footwear technology. Technological change is at the forefront of all innovations, products and services. The visitors can expect many exciting innovations.
Again, national and global market-leading companies will be present at OTWorld and show off their products to orthopaedic footwear professionals. There will be presentations covering various areas such as workshop equipment, new products for the orthopaedic footwear specialist shops as well as digital solutions for the office. In keeping with this, the top theme of this year's trade show is "Digitalisation of the orthopaedic shoe technology workshop". Scanners and systems for gait analysis or the digital manufacture of insoles are among the fascinating innovations at OTWorld 2020.
For all those interested in gaining a deeper insight into orthopaedic footwear technology, the congress offers training opportunities parallel to the trade show. There will be exciting lecture events such as the symposium "Conservative care in orthopaedic footwear technology" in cooperation with DGIHV the Deutsche Gesellschaft für interprofessionelle Hilfsmittelversorgung e.V. (German Society for Interprofessional Aid Supply) or the course "Toe deformities - pathology, diagnostics, conservative and operative therapy" in cooperation with D.A.F the Deutsche Assoziation für Fuß- und Sprunggelenk e.V.
