Researchers at the University of Strathclyde, UK are looking for prosthetists, orthotists, and technicians to participate in an online survey about the barriers to adopting 3D printing in clinical practices.

What is the purpose of this research?
The goal of this research is to examine the extent to which scanning and 3D printing are used in P&O clinics in Canada. We would also like to identify the barriers P&O professionals face in adopting 3D printing technology. We are seeking Prosthetic/Orthotic professionals (clinicians, technicians, residents, and interns) who are 18+ years old and who work in Canada to participate in an online questionnaire.

What will you do in the study?
You will be invited to complete an online questionnaire. The survey will ask about what types of digital technologies are used in your practice. Some basic demographic information will be requested; however, no identifying information will be collected.

How long will it take?
The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete.
