MSPO Clinical Laboratory

Prosthetics and Orthotics Fabrication Laboratory


Alabama State University has an accredited Masters of Science in prosthetics and orthotics (MSPO) program housed in an 8,000 square foot facility for clinical instruction and prosthetic/orthotic fabrication. The facility has 18 workstations with vertical fabrication jigs for P&O fabrication, six PDQ ovens, 16 lamination stations, ten variable speed trautmans, and all other equipment necessary for the fabrication of prosthetic devices. The MSPO program employs a full-time technician to help with any fabrication projects.
