Proper training in the field of orthotic and health support fitting is an absolute
necessity for anyone wishing to engage in this area of patient care.
Referral sources and third party payers demand specific credentials on the part
of their approved providers. In addition, state licensure and Medicare regulations
are steadily being tightened with new, strictly enforced guidelines that specify
the initial – and on-going – training regimens a fitter must undergo in order to
be considered “certified”.
