This program aims to train qualified technicians for the orthopedic prosthetics and orthotics program as part of vocational school. In case of losing limbs like hand, foot etc., it’s really important to have qualified technicians who know the techniques of making prosthetic limbs that cover the functions of the lost limbs or externally applied devices (orthoses) to protect, fix and support some of the body parts. It is obvious that the need of qualified technicians is increasing rapidly day by day. This program trains health technicians (orthopedic prosthetics and orthotics technician) that will cover the need of qualified technicians.
