DM Orthotics Masterclass

DMOs use strategically placed panelling which correctly aligns the body. This new positioning stimulates sensory systems throughout the body and re-programmes the brain, ensuring that muscles operate in their new state of optimal alignment. Our masterclasses will provide an introduction to our range of products highlighting patient groups who would benefit and demonstrate video evidence of the orthoses in practice. These classes will be hosted by Neil Hinde, Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, Sarah O’Leary Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist and Patricia McCotter, Clinical Specialist Orthotist and Clinical Manager, all three have numerous years of experience in the treatment of neurological conditions. Please attend to learn how DEFOs could be used in your clinical practice to improve outcome measures for your neurological clients.
