COURSE OUTLINE FOR SPECIALITY “ORTHOPEDIC TECHNICIAN”
THE BASICS OF FUNCTIONAL CORRECTION FOR ELEMENTS OF LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM OF HUMAN BODY

1. Introduction
• The statistical information on the onset and development of:
a.Feet deformities (or deformations)
b. Defects in the posture (or deportment)
c. Varicosis

• Review of the different technologies for orthotics manufacturing
• Mistakes and drawbacks in the world practice of orthotics manufacturing
• The “negative” method of producing the foot imprint (or impress). Materials used for the orthotics manufacturing
• The basic principles of the foot correction. The leading principles of choosing the method for the orthotics manufacturing and choosing the quality of materials used in the process

2. Biomechanics of the Foot

A. The Deformations of the Skeletal and Muscular Structures
* The anatomy of the human body. The anatomy of the feet
* The arch-like (similar to the arch) construction of the feet. Feet’s functionality (or functional abilities)
* What is the meaning of “the deformations of the skeletal and muscular structures”
* The diagnostics of the muscles conditions (or the muscles state) – hypertone and hypotone
* The muscles structure and the physiological features and various particularities of muscles conditions
* The character of the loading process for the feet arches and the reasons for their deformations
* The methods used for the arch deformities testing
* The sequence of arch deformations development (or evolution) and how these deformations are interconnected

B. Biomechanics of Walking Process (or Gait)
* Different phases of walking process (gait)
* Reactions of the support (or footing) when walking movements occur (take place)

C. The Mechanism of How Deformations Are Developing (or Evolving):
* Development of the child’s foot
* The foot arches and their functionality (how they are working or operating)
* The main types of the feet and the different kinds of their deformations
* Defects (disbalances) in the posture (or deportment)

D. The Functionality (Functional Abilities) of the Feet:
* The arches deformations as the primary reason for cellular metabolism disruption (metabolism disbalance on the cellular level)
* The “pumping” function of the muscles; the lymph circulation and the blood circulation in the human body
* The three “muscles pumps”
* Vegetovascular distony
* The “cold feet”, varicose veins, feet swelling
* Diabetic foot

E. The Biomechanics of the Subtalar Joint

3. The Physiology of the Human Organism

A. The cellular energy. The physiology of the muscles
* The role played by muscles in providing the cellular metabolism
* Displasia of the conjunction tissue and hypertone of the muscles (two states of the human organism)
* Self-regulatory function of the human organism
* The meaning of the “healthy organism” (organism whose functions are balanced in terms of energy)
* The main parameters of vital capacity (or vitality) for the biological system (temperature, blood pressure, blood composition)
* The feet deformations that lead to the disbalance of the functional state of the human organism in terms of energy
* The deep muscles of the spine

B. The Vestibular Apparatus
