The Utah Assistive Technology Program (UATP) will present a free online interactive training, Infant Head Shape Deformities and Correction Through Use of Cranial Remolding Orthoses, on Wednesday, Dec. 5 from 3 – 4:30 p.m.

This free training, presented by Dallin Chambers, certified orthotist at Northwest Orthotics and Prosthetics, will cover head reshaping through the use of a cranial remolding orthosis. The following aspects will be discussed:  head shape deformities, necessary measurements–how to obtain them and what they mean to you as the practitioner or parent—contraindications, scanning process, overall treatment from initial evaluation to final appointment, insurance companies that cover them and their requirements.

Chambers received a Bachelor’s of Science Degree from the University of Utah in exercise and sports science.  He continued his education at Century College in White Bear Lake, Minn., where he completed two more years of specialized schooling in the field of orthotics.  He completed a one-year residency at Northwest Orthotics and Prosthetics in Provo where he continues to work as a certified orthotist.
