Prosthetic and orthotic devices are a rapidly growing area of interest in workers’ compensation and auto no-fault. You should understand what goes in to the evaluation of injured persons to determine which device is most appropriate and helps ensure the optimal clinical, functional, and financial outcomes. Join Optum’s prosthetist orthotist, Tim Riedlinger, and medical director, Dr. Robert Hall, for an in-depth discussion on what you need to know when it comes to prosthetic and orthotic device claims. Our experts will review the different types of amputations, the available prosthetic devices and components, and what is considered when determining which prosthetic device is best for a particular amputee.
You’ll also learn about the various orthotic devices that are prescribed for conditions ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome to spine fractures. They will also explore the differences between off-the-shelf and custom-made orthotic devices, the medical conditions that may require an orthotic device, and potential safety concerns related to orthotic devices.
