HGI Course -

Lecture session in Boise, ID

Since 2008 HGI has organized and conducted training courses for orthotists/prosthetists, physical therapists, and other healthcare professionals, teaching new techniques and methodologies for lower extremity orthoses. The courses are conducted at least twice a year throughout the United States, and have been taught in Denmark.

HGI’s training courses emphasize triplanar management in multiple planes and encourage application of the same principles that have been used successfully in prosthetics. Hands-on
experiential learning is stressed, especially
at the intermediate and advanced training levels.

Hands on Casting during course

The Human Gait Institute is planning the 14th offering of the Lower Extremity Orthotic Triplanar Management Fundamentals Course in 2017

The courses build on information presented in the 1990s by Jean-Paul Nielsen, Deanne Fish, and others and present ways to manage rotary lower extremity deformities in addition to other anatomic mal-alignments and to prevent worsening deformities in a small group, interactive, hands-on setting.

The attendance is limited to a maximum of 12 attendees per course because we have found that the best learning of this material occurs in small groups, with significant hands-on experiences, and with a high faculty to learner ratio (never more than 4 attendees per 1 faculty member).

In the past ABC has granted us 14.25 CECs for this course. Confirm with Marmaduke that those units will continue to be granted.


Location: Marmaduke Loke’s Dynamic Bracing Solutions
6092 Innovation Way, Carlsbad, CA. 92009
(about 40 miles north of San Diego International Airport)

Cost: $650.00 that includes lunches both days, pizza and beer/soft drinks on Thursday evening, and beverages & snacks throughout course.

Time: All day for two days

Note: prior attendance at an OOS course is NOT a prerequisite for our courses!
