If you’re an orthotist, prosthetist, technician, facility owner, or student, we hope you’re making plans to attend the 2014 American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA) National Assembly, September 4-7th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year’s meeting is already expected to be one of the biggest in AOPA history; hosted at the stunning Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.
If you’re attending, be sure to stop by the Product Preview Theater in the Exhibit Hall Friday, September 5th at 2:10 for the educational and clinical session “Presentation of a New Intervention for the Management of Skin Breakdown for Amputees“, presented by Charles Kuffel, MSM, CPO, FAAOP and Kevin Hines, CPO of Arise Orthotics & Prosthetics (Blaine, MN USA).
In this session, you’ll learn about the all-new GlideWear® Prosthetic Liner Patch from Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc.; a breakthrough in skin breakdown relief and prevention for amputees. Kuffel and Hines will present numerous case studies detailing the efficacy of GlideWear as a tool to provide immediate comfort and lasting protection for lower-limb amputees.
The GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch is available to healthcare professionals from O&P suppliers worldwide. Consumers can purchase GlideWear online from Amputee Supplies and Ithaca Sports.
While browsing the exhibit hall, be sure to stop by booth 1142 to see what’s new from Tamarack. We hope to see you in Las Vegas!
