Overview

This program aims to train qualified technicians for the orthopedic prosthetics and orthotics program as part of vocational school. In case of losing limbs like hand, foot etc., it’s really important to have qualified technicians who know the techniques of making prosthetic limbs that cover the functions of the lost limbs or externally applied devices (orthoses) to protect, fix and support some of the body parts.
