Supplementary Information
A Certified Pedorthist is a health care professional who is specifically educated and trained to manage comprehensive pedorthic patient care. This includes patient assessment, formulation of a treatment plan, implementation of the treatment plan, follow-up, and practice management. A certified pedorthist fits, fabricates, adjusts, or modifies devices which reflect his/her education and training.
The profession of pedorthics is the provision of patient care and services by or under the direction and supervision of an ABC certified pedorthist to provide the application of a pedorthic device for the prevention or amelioration of painful and/or disabling conditions of the foot and ankle. A prescription is required for any pedorthic device, modification and/or prefabricated below-the-knee orthosis addressing a medical condition that originates at the ankle or below.
"Pedorthic devices" means therapeutic shoes, shoe modifications made for therapeutic purposes, partial foot prostheses, and foot orthoses.
1000 hours of work experience is required before taking the Pedorthic Certification Exam (ABC or BOC).
