The Orthotics and Prosthetics Association of India is an Organisation for Prosthetics and Orthotics Professionals that works primarily in the knowledge domain in the field of prosthetics and orthotics to serve the Divyangjan with appropriate technology.
We are pleased to announce that the XXVth National Conference of the Orthotics and Prosthetics Association of India (OPAI-2020) will be held from 7 to 9 February 2020 at KIIT University, Bhubaneswar with a pre-conference workshop on 6 February 2020.
Prosthetics and Orthotics has been steadily gaining attention as a relatively new field for improving health of persons with locomotor disabilities due to recent technological advancements. Many new technologies have emerged, especially by harvesting the application of robotics.
As OPAI’s flagship meeting, the Biennial National Conference is a unique interactive event where professionals involved in the care of persons in need of prosthetic, orthotic, mobility, and assistive devices come together to learn about the latest scientific and clinical advances, products, innovative technologies, designs, and materials in prosthetic and orthotic care.
“Emerging technology for Divyangjan”, the theme of the OPAI’s 25th National Conference, reflects the breadth of the prosthetics and orthotics field, including traditional rehabilitation approaches and more complex interactions between humans and machines (rehabilitation robotics), while embracing the relevance and importance of both basic and emerging technologies.
The broad programme features eminent speakers, a pre-conference workshop, exhibitor workshops, paper and poster presentations.
Also, it offers professionals involved in P&O rehabilitation a unique opportunity for continued development through discussion and exchange between teachers, clinicians, researchers, technicians, manufactures, doctors, therapists and healthcare decision makers.
You are cordially invited to participate in this exciting programme to share your insight and experiences in prosthetics and orthotics. We are looking forward to seeing you in this memorable Silver Jubilee National Conference.
