Allard USA announces that Stephen T. Hughes, CFo, LO, has joined Allard USA as educational product specialist, to provide education, clinical support, and expertise for Allard’s staff, the O&P community, and its referral sources on Allard’s products.

Hughes has more than 30 years’ experience in the O&P industry, as technical staff, product specialist, orthotist/fitter, and finally as Director of Central Fabrication, where he gained extensive knowledge in all areas of orthothic and prosthetic fabrication.

He specializes in RGO’s, Stance Phase Control systems, and carbon graphite materials. For the last 20 years he has conducted lectures, workshops, and product demonstrations within the O&P industry.

The most rewarding part of his career, he says in an Allard media release, “has been working directly with the patient and rolling up my sleeves knowing the orthosis I was fabricating was going to help my patient get back their life.”

“Steve is key in the completion of a multidisciplinary educational team Allard has developed to bring the most comprehensive resources to our customers allowing them to provide high quality care to their patients,” says Justi Appel, director of education and clinical support, per the release.
