The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists

Inducts 2011 Class of Fellows

WASHINGTON, DC ―March 18, 2011―
The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists inducted its 2011 Class of Fellows during its Annual Business Meeting on March 18 in Orlando. Manuel R. Garcia, CPO, LPO, FAAOP was one of only twelve people in the nation to receive this distinction this year. The achievement of the designation, Fellow of the Academy, is indicative of the practitioner’s dedication to maintaining high quality patient care through a personal commitment toward continuing education. Active Academy members are eligible to become Fellows of the Academy once they complete the education criteria. Fellows of the Academy are recognized with the initials FAAOP after their name.

The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (AAOP) founded in 1970, is the pre-eminent professional organization representing practitioners certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABC), state licensed practitioners, as well as assistants, technicians, fitters, and others affiliated with the profession of orthotics and prosthetics (O&P). Academy’s mission is to promote professionalism and advance the standards of patient care through education, literature, research, advocacy, and collaboration. In keeping with this mission, the Academy supports the highest standards for providers to ensure quality comprehensive orthotic and prosthetic services for patients. The Academy provides programs and seminars for continuing education and supports research, outreach, and advocacy to advance the scientific and educational achievements of O&P professionals.

The Academy holds Fellow inductions once each year at the Academy Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium. The 2012 Academy Annual Meeting will be held in Atlanta, March 21 - 24.



Old Foot New Concept

Vari-Flex® with EVO
...The Evolution Continues

For 25 years, Flex-Foot® has been the foot of choice for prosthetists and amputees
alike and with the new Vari-Flex with EVO, the evolution continues.

The Vari-Flex with EVO provides a unique combination of comfort and dynamics,
and is designed to make life easier – for everyone.

For prosthetists, the Vari-Flex with EVO is lightweight, easy to assemble and its slender profile makes it easy to cover cosmetically.
And for amputees it ensures the highest levels of confidence and security. Offering natural gait with less fatigue
and ultimately less strain on the lower back and sound side, it is the ideal foot for any activity.
Vari-Flex with EVO enables amputees to walk more comfortably, better and for longer.

The EVO (Energy Vector Optimization) feature is generated by controlling how the ground reaction
force is transferred to the prosthetic foot. Each step is optimized through the magnitude, placement and
direction of forces for maximum efficiency. EVO enables the amputee to develop the most natural
gait progression possible which reduces fatigue and puts less pressure on the sound side.

The EVO feature provides:

* Fluent roll-over which mimics natural gait progression
* Reduced fatigue
* Effortless control of the ankle during stance phase
* Less pressure on the sound side
* Less pressure on the lower back
