Double Doctoral Program MOA
On 22nd November 2021, 16:30 – 17:25 (GMT+7, Bangkok Time), the virtual Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for Double Degree Doctoral Program in Prosthetics and Orthotics has been officially signed between the Sirindhorn School of Prosthetic and Orthotic (SSPO), Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, and Graduate School of Health and Welfare, Niigata University of Health and Welfare, Japan.
Double Doctoral Program MOA
Prof. Prasit Wattanapha
In this event, Prof. Prasit Wattanapha, Dean of Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, and Dr. Masatoyo Nishizawa, President of Niigata University of Health and Welfare, with respectful representatives from each university jointly signed and witnessed the virtual MOA signing ceremony together to create a strong cooperation in exchange and development of the P&O postgraduate education.
Double Doctoral Program MOA
This Doctoral Degree Program is the first double doctoral program in prosthetics and orthotics in the world !! The program is now open for the first batch.

Biomechanics

As we have already mentioned the importance of Physics to the Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O), today, let’s give you an idea of the Biomechanics to the P&O studies.

Biomechanics is one of the applied sciences in Biophysics that studies force and its effect on living beings. Biomechanics scientific principle has utilized in expansive professional practices, e.g., medicine, engineering, sport, rehabilitation including P&O, etc.

Biomechanics in P&O focuses on studying the efficiency of the external device to the patient in both clinical practice and research development.
As there are many sub-disciplines in Biomechanics, the most account in P&O is the study of the movement of definite objects (Rigid body) or ‘our body’.

Prosthetists and Orthotists must study a variety of biomechanics sub-topics such as Gait biomechanics, Spine biomechanics, Muscle biomechanics, especially the biomechanics for each prosthesis and orthosis device.

Physics in Prosthetic and Orthotic

Do you know why prosthetist and orthotist have to study physics?

As we all know, physics is a science that deals with studying the natural behaviour of living things, matter, energy, and physical changes. However, Physics has a comprehensive course scope. Several sub-disciplines have been applied to learning prostheses, so prosthodontists should understand how each device works and used it as basic knowledge in the development of orthotics as well,
for example.

1. Kinetic study
2. Kinematic study
3. Sequential muscular activity study
4. Energetic study, etc.
