ISICO offers the first international online Course that deals in-depth and practically with the construction (and prescription) of the Sforzesco brace, the first brace of the category super-rigid recently proposed in the SOSORT-SRS-ISPO-POSNA Braces Classification. The Sforzesco brace is also the first brace based on the upwards pushing action according to the SPoRT concept (Symmetric Patient-oriented Rigid Threedimensional); it introduces the concept of slope and corrective drivers.
In the past, we have already offered this course in many editions as an in-person learning experience for CPOs (Certified Prosthetist-Orthotists) and Physicians working in the Italian national territory. Now, we are ready to reach a much broader audience thanks to the e-learning tools we have been successfully using since 2016 for our International Master “Principles and Practice of Scoliosis Conservative Treatment (PPSCT)”.
The starting point of the Course is the presentation of the Sforzesco brace in its evolution from the first years of application to the current relevant innovations, accompanied and supported by the results of research in ISICO, published in indexed international literature. A general explanation of the SPoRT concept, its construction principles, and the practical application closes the first part.
It is accompanied by several lectures held directly by CPOs who collaborate with ISICO in the realization of the Sforzesco braces, on the various technical and practical aspects to be taken into account during the design and the fabrication, presented first under their theoretical aspects and then in the job implementation carried out in the orthopaedic workshop through many videos and examples.
The course is divided into three modules with recorded video lectures on the specific topics of each module. A Live lecture closes each module and makes the point with real clinical cases.
For those interested, there will be an optional personalized module to build three Sforzesco braces in the own orthopaedic workshop under the tutorship of one of our experienced CPOs, remotely connected.
This learning opportunity aims to spread the direct experience that ISICO has gathered in these 19 years of clinical practice applied to over 10,000 patients wearing our braces.
The basis of the decision to offer a decidedly “practical” online course on the prescription and realization of an orthosis was the very positive experience of the International Master Online, intended primarily for physicians and focused on the Principles and Practice of Conservative Treatment of Scoliosis, to manage their patients according to evidence-based medicine (EBM). That online Master course has now reached its 7th edition in English, its 3rd edition in Chinese, and from this year, we are welcoming the 1st edition in Spanish.
This Course is primarily addressed to CPOs engaged in constructing these braces and Physicians prescribing braces for patients affected by vertebral deformities.
