Many of the practical seminars held, are done with the help of test patients, who will be supplied with the most different orthopaedic technical aids. The patient room is functionally equipped and adapted
to the needs of the disabled with examination couch, measuring chair and parallel bars. As the room is also used for plaster casting, of course a patient shower room is provided as well.
The main setting for all seminars is provided by the well lit and comfortably equipped seminar room „Audi Max“ with 160 seats and adequate seminar material. Beamer, headset and hand-held microphone for the teachers are part of the equipment as well as the multi-functional control device for the entire media processor from acoustics to room illumination. No matter whether the seminar
is held as lecture or as inter-active event; due to the mobile seating, the room can be flexibly equipped with seating rows or in circle setting.
Engineering and Aircraft Technology – Ernst Mittelbach – (G15) Especially in the plaster casting and plaster modeling room, it is essential to optimise work procedures as the processes are complex
and time-intensive. Due to the functional floor plan and room equipment, even large groups of up to 20 students can be trained in Hamburg to accomplish demanding plaster tasks and to store
the created plaster models neatly and orderly. The equipment of the plaster casting area always requires special considerations during planning phase, as special on-site provisions must be observed, such as the inclusion of angled frames in the concrete floor surface.
In order to optimally prepare students with practice-oriented training for their professional life, the school offers vocational traineeinstruction in close cooperation with experienced master orthopaedic
technicians. The training takes place in the workshop (G15) and contains among others, seminars in synthetic material processing and modern technologies in prosthetic and orthotic manufacturing. To be able to study all work processes in orthopaedic technology, the 20 work spaces have been set up as multi-function work spaces. Among others, the room provides resin lamination- and adhesive work stations and various types of heating ovens. The training contents can be reflected on a screen by means of the beamer installed at the ceiling. The modern ergonomic work space layout corresponds to the manifold work protection demands of the employers’ liability insurance associations.
