Ottobock UK have a team of field based staff who are dedicated to managing the Ottobock product training needs of our UK customers. Known as ‘Academy Clinicians,’ these highly skilled individuals are experts within the prosthetics and orthotics industry. Rigorous training of our staff and on our own products ensures our customers receive the very best, most advanced training on what can be very complex products.


What does training from Ottobock UK include?

The Ottobock UK Academy team offer training on our entire product portfolio, this includes prosthetics and orthotics for both upper limb and lower limb. Our academy clinicians can explain the technical features of each product, as well as detail the specialist materials used in the production of each device.

In addition to this, we also provide training on clinical assessment techniques when measuring the progress of patients using our products. Training is not just restricted to prosthetists and orthotists; in fact, it is extended out to the full multi-disciplinary team, including consultants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and also to technicians involved in the manufacture and repair of prostheses/orthosis.

Our academy team are dedicated to training others on the Ottobock product line, but also provide further support to clinicians on a reactive basis. Mentoring clinicians until they are comfortable to fit our products independently is a large part of the support we routinely offer our customers.
