Dr Ian Mathieson (Senior Lecturer in Podiatry) and one of his students Oliver Harness, have developed in collaboration, an OER resource to assist in clinical decision-making within the field of Orthotics (in-shoe devices). Oliver has experience in web design, and suggested producing a web-based resource that could be accessed on portable devices, to support students' clinical practice. The intention is that the existing web-based resource will eventually be developed into an App for use on Smartphones and tablets, and the approach could also be extended to apply to other areas of clinical practice.
Watch the video to see Dr Ian Mathieson describe the 'Which Orthotic' resource in more detail, and the website itself can be accessed on www.whichorthotic.co.uk
