February 2017 Webinar: O&P Fabrication in Canada

O&P Fabrication in Canada is Changing.
Don’t get left behind.


In 2016, more O&P clinics in Canada switched to using Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) tools than in any previous year.


Frozen reimbursement rates, a shortage of qualified clinicians, rising patient expectations, and the desire for better work-life balance are among the many challenges driving this surge.

Get answers to important questions:
  • What has been the experience of Canadian clinics using 3D scanners, clinical modification software, and automated mold carvers?
  • What mold or device central fabrication services are available to smaller clinics who use O&P design software?
  • How are the productivity gains of 300-600% changing the business of O&P?
  • Can digital tools help practitioners improve patient outcomes?
  • Are these technologies affordable?
  • What are the leasing and pay-as-you-go options?
  • What are the secrets to a successful switch from plaster to digital tools?
  • How and when will 3D printing become common?
