Birmingham, UK-based Delcam announced in December that its popular technology forum will expand its scope in 2015 to include orthopedics. The change is reflected in the event’s new name, the Ortho Technology Forum (OTF), which reflects the inclusion of technologies for orthopedic footwear, as well as those for orthotic devices. (The event was formerly called the Orthotics Technology Forum.)
Due to the continued popularity of the OTF, Delcam will host two conferences this year, one in Canada and a second in Australia.
In North America, the 2015 OTF will be held as a presymposium event to the 2015 Pedorthic Association of Canada (PAC) Symposium in partnership with PFOLA (Prescription Foot Orthotic Laboratory Association). The event is scheduled to be held at Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, Canada, April 16-18. The Australian OTF is scheduled for May 6-8 and will be part of the Australian Podiatry Council’s (APodC) 2015 Conference, to be held at the Gold Coast Conference and Exhibition Centre in Queensland.
