Mr. Gavin is a Consulting Faculty member of the Northwestern University Medical School, Prosthetic-Orthotic Centerand is a Teaching Associate in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, Loyola University Chicago, Maywood, Illinois. He lectures in several orthotic courses for orthotists, physicians and surgeons, physical therapists and biomedical engineers throughout many of the universities in the Midwest. Educating health professionals in the area of spinal orthotic treatment is a major part of Mr. Gavin's duties. By educating students and allied health professionals, he is able to disseminate important advances into the medical community. This enables others to improve the quality of life for people who need help throughout the world. He is always available to help further the knowledge of others.
His professional memberships include theScoliosis Research Society, the North American Spine Society, the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics, and the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists.
As the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics(December 1996 - December 2000) Mr. Gavin was responsible for creating the Associate Editorial Board which was comprised of MDs and PhDs from a multitude of subspecialties including orthopaedics, physical medicine, amputation surgery, biomechanics, gait analysis, psychology, research methodology, statistics and orthopaedic research. He also was instrumental in the implementation of Lippincott Williams and Wilkins as the publisher of the JPO. Gavin was Chairperson of the Spinal Society of the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (1996-1999) and has arranged several spinal symposiums on dedicated topics.
During November 1997, he was invited as a spinal expert by the World Health Organization in Conjunction with the International Society For Prosthetics and Orthoticsand the Tunisian Ministries of Health to attend the Consensus Conference on Poliomyelitis in Tunis, Tunisia
to present Biomechanical Principles of Orthotic Treatment for the Neuromuscular Spine. In November 1998 Mr. Gavin was a participating faculty member in a Spinal Symposium with a hands-on workshop in Bogota Colombia. During November 1999 he participated as faculty
in the International Short-term Course on the Management of Polio in Bangalore India; also with a hands-on workshop. During August 2000, Mr. Gavin presented at the International Short-term Course on the Management of Polio, in Moshi, Tanzania Africa. Also, in December 2000, Gavin and Gomez conducted a course on spinal orthotics in Mexico City, D.F. Mexico for the Sociedad Mexicana de Ortesistas y Protesistas (SMOPAC)
...
In addition to multiple research presentations at the annual meetings of the Scoliosis Research Society, North American Spine Societyand the International Society for the Studies of Lumbar Spine, Mr. Gavin has authored and co-authored 7 book chapters and a multitude of journal articles for orthotic treatment of spinal disorders and spinal biomechanics.
Academic awards received by Mr. Gavin include the 1993 award for Outstanding Technical Research, the first annual Thranhardt award (1996) for a presentation entitled Geometric Analysis of Coronal Decompensation in Idiopathic Scoliosis and the third annual Thranhardt award (1998) for a presentation entitled Orthotic Treatment for Neuromuscular Scoliosis. These were awarded by the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists. He also received 1st place for "best article" in 1993 as first author of the published manuscript entitled Orthotic Treatment for Chronic Low Back Pain: Preliminary Results, as well as 2nd place in "best article" in 1996 for co-authoring Biomechanical Comparison of the Milwaukee Brace and TLSO for the Orthotic Treatment for Idiopathic Scoliosis. These were awarded by the Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics.
Development and implementation of the Rosenberger Scoliosis Orthosis as well as pioneering Orthotic Treatment for Chronic Low Back Pain are but a few examples of his innovations. He also was a co-investigator in the project Orthotic Stabilization of Thoracolumbar Fractures and a co-principal investigator in the development of a Compliance Monitor for Spinal Orthoses. Current developmental projects include the development of The Class II Posterior Shell TLSO for the Treatment of Spinal Osteoporosis and a Distractive Cervico-Thoracic Orthosis . Gavin and his colleagues are currently pursuing 2 patents for orthotic devices they have developed.
