About Rafaqat Afridi

I have done Master in orthotic rehabilitation Studies (University of Strathclyde). I am a member of British Association of prosthetist and orthotist and also registered with UK Health professional council as a practitioner. During my study I did different systematic reviews. The most important was the Ponseti method use in club foot (CTEV) treatment, in this I have defended the maintenance phase (orthotic treatment) and highlighted the reasons responsible for failure of this treatment. The second important topic was the efficacy of orthotic treatment in Knee medial compartment osteoarthritis (pain, function, gait and medication intake). Beside this i have attended different short courses. Previously I have worked with different organizations where I have gained the reputation not only for my impressive work rate and integrity but also for my sound technical skills, I am a self-motivated individual.

I can guide fresh graduate in getting admission in foreign universities, how and where to apply for scholarship and the requirements for foreign professional registration, I have also highlighted the need of higher education (prosthetic and orthotic) in Pakistan to common wealth. The course is now under common wealth scholarship.
