ORTE 1050 - Stirrup Layout and Fabrication

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This course introduces the musculoskeletal system and examines body movements and planes that divide the human body. In the laboratory setting, students integrate this theoretical knowledge with practical orthotic theory to correct a tracing of the lower-limb and fabricate a stirrup, shaping and attaching it to the patient’s shoe to accommodate ankle deformities.
MnTC Goals
