Diabetes, Pressure Analysis & Foot Ulcers
This 1-hour webinar is designed for musculoskeletal health care practitioners to learn about diabetic foot ulcers.  The webinar covers the research on pressure analysis with respect to diabetic foot ulcers and the research that has been done with respect to the effectiveness of orthotic therapy.  In addition therapeutic interventions will be considered.   Key Learning Objectives include: 1. Understanding the pathology behind the formation of diabetic foot ulcers from a pressure analysis point of view 2. Understanding the common approaches to treatment for the these conditions 3. Learn about the literature regarding the effectiveness of foot orthotics in the treatment of patients with diabetes.
Fall Risk Assessment WEBINAR (USA based practitioners only)
This 90 minute Fall Risk Assessment webinar is designed for musculoskeletal health care practitioners to learn about fall risk in the elderly. It covers mechanisms of postural control, fall risk assessment tools, and the role of exercise, walking aids, orthotics & Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFO’s) in the management of those at risk of falling. Join this webinar to learn about how postural control is maintained in normal individuals, recognize when your patient is at greater risk of a fall, literature regarding foot orthotics and balance, and literature regarding AFO’s and balance.
All About OHI1Scan, 3D Foot Scanner Webinar

Cloud-based technology offers the flexibility of transitioning between the iPad and your office computer seamlessly. Capture scans quickly and easily using the iPad + Structure sensor. Track the progress of your orders at a glance through the dashboard on your computer. Receive notifications as the orders are processed and subsequently shipped. In addition, the OHI1Scan replaces the need for foam boxes and plaster as the 3D Scan rendition of the patient’s feet which is needed to meet insurance requirements in most Canadian jurisdictions.
Orthotics for Children: Orthotics for Conditions Limited to Children WEBINAR
This 1-hour webinar addresses orthotic therapy for conditions predominately limited to paediatric populations. Specifically the conditions discussed will be Growing Pains, Flexible Flat Foot, and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. We will discuss the clinical presentation of these conditions, clinical assessment to document/diagnose these conditions and research indicating the effectiveness of orthotic therapy in the treatment of these conditions.
Diabetes WEBINAR

Leg Length Discrepancy WEBINAR
This 1-hour webinar is designed for practitioners seeking to learn more about the nuances of the treating leg length discrepancy. The presentation will include a review of the most common causes of leg length discrepancy (structural and functional), and how much of a difference is clinically significant. We will discuss methods for determining the amount of lift required and how to incrementally reach the final correction. We will also cover when and how to integrate lift therapy with orthotic therapy and how the age of the patient and compensations influence treatment decisions about leg length discrepancy.

Analyzing Gait Patterns & The DynaFlange™ Orthotic

Ask TOG’s Clinical Advisors! Our Clinical Team answers your questions
In this 1-hour webinar, our TOG Clinical Team answers your most frequently asked question, including tips to help you get better initial results, and return less orthotics. This is an opportunity to ask our clinical advisors, James Canning & Andrew Kawn, your questions about custom orthotics, and learn from your fellow practitioners.
When to Recommend a Prefabricated Orthotic
During this 1-hour webinar will address why prefabricated orthotics are an excellent short term treatment for average pronation issues. You will learn about the following patient target groups: patients who need immediate relief, patients who are hesitant to commit to a more expensive custom device, patients who would like multiple pairs of orthotics for different footwear, for children who are growing very quickly, and patients with cost concerns to even consider trying orthotic therapy.
Orthotic Considerations for Common Sports
In this 1-hour webinar you will learn about the biomechanical properties of each common sport and custom foot orthotic solutions for specific sports. This presentation will also cover the systematic approach to designing the correct sport orthotic, selecting the correct materials, picking the best sport shoe, and matching the correct orthotic design to the right sports footwear.
GaitScan™ Interpretation
This 1-hour webinar is perfect for those who are new to or want a refresher of the basics. You will learn the various elements of a GaitScan™ report and how they correlate with clinical findings; how to identify the three key measurements in a GaitScan™ report and use the data from a GaitScan™ report to write a prescription for custom orthotics.
Managing Polyneuropathy
Polyneuropathy is the most common form of peripheral neuropathy. It affects over thirty million Americans, three million Canadians and its incidence is growing rapidly. Polyneuropathy is the most common and often the first complication of diabetes. Until recently, the mainstay of treatment for polyneuropathy was the use of anticonvulsants and/or antidepressants, drugs that sedate and suppress nervous system function. Today, many doctors have discovered that they can successfully manage their patients’ symptoms nutritionally with NeuRemedy®, the polyneuropathy vitamin. NeuRemedy® is a safe and effective high potency form of vitamin B1. NeuRemedy® was recently licensed by Health Canada for people suffering from polyneuropathy. NeuRemedy® can be dispensed from your office to your patients suffering from polyneuropathy.
