Irvine, CA (June, 6, 2017) – Freedom Innovations, a global manufacturer of lower limb prosthetics, today unveiled the Freedom Institute of Technology (FIT), the educational branch of Freedom Innovations dedicated to providing the latest information to practitioners via a collection of live trainings, webinars and online courses designed to support clinicians in their practice. FIT provides clinicians with the most up-to-date information on products, new technology, leading clinical techniques, and reimbursement support.

“We feel it’s important to offer a robust educational program to all of our clinician partners,” said David Smith, Chairman and CEO, Freedom Innovations. “The Freedom Institute of Technology gives our customers direct access to information and tools they need to thoughtfully serve their patient population. The foundation of our company and products is innovation. We strive for continuous positive changes that result in ease of use for our patients. FIT conveniently shares meaningful information about our products, either in-person, and hands on, or through online interactive learning.”

The Freedom Institute of Technology is divided into three areas:

  • FIT Forums, in-person, mobile courses, presented by clinical prosthetists spanning the entire Freedom portfolio and covering a variety of topics including:
    • fitting and proper candidate selection for devices
    • device programming made easy
    • patient gait training
  • FIT Online courses, offering interactive learning modules available 24/7 covering product features and benefits of award-winning products, including:
    • Kinnex, microprocessor controlled ankle
    • Plie 3, microprocessor controlled knee
    • additional courses updated on a regular basis
  • FIT Webinars cover timely topics important to clinicians such as auditing and the latest in best billing and coding practices for lower limb prosthetic devices, including reimbursement strategies for success
  • All FIT courses are ABC-approved, offering CEUs for clinicians.

“When we have breakthroughs — whether on the product side, or the business side – we want to relay that information quickly to our clinician partners,” said Coryn Olpin, Director of FIT. “FIT is our one-stop platform created to educate, engage and support our customers. For example, FIT Online has support courses for our latest technologies – including our latest innovation, the Kinnex microprocessor ankle. When we reduced the programming time for the Plie 3 to less than 5 minutes, we immediately created courses to support the dissemination of this information. In essence, we view FIT as our brand of educational services, leveraging our expertise by providing up-to-date information for both products and services.”
