Delcam’s 2013 Orthotics Technology Forum, held in the US for the first time in May at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, showcased new and upcoming technologies and processes designed to assist practitioners in the prescription, design, and manufacture of custom orthotic insoles and orthopedic shoes. More than 100 delegates attended the educational event, participating in sessions that included discussions on reverse engineering, unique designs for mass production, lean manufacturing applications, the use of ultrasound for plantar tissue assessment, the integration of digital technology, and the future of orthotic manufacturing. (See “Conference Coverage: Orthotics Technology Forum 2013,” July, page 39.) Delcam plans to host two separate events in 2014, one in Europe and another in the US.
