Orthotics

Orthotics are wearable devices that can help with paralysis, pain, and loss of function in upper or lower limbs, and the back. Medically prescribed orthotics can be worn daily or as and when required. Wearing an orthotic can reduce pain and reduce pathological developments for people with various conditions.

Prosthetics

Prosthetics are devices worn by people following amputation surgery – the main goal being to replace missing limbs to increase mobility and range of activities that can be achieved by the wearer. To ensure prosthetics work correctly, they must be tailor made for the wearer.

Who Is Our Orthotics & Prosthetics Service For?

The range of people we can help with correctly fitted orthotics is vast. Although orthotic devices can be worn on the upper limbs, they are also commonly used for people with foot and ankle issues. These can be caused by conditions such as diabetes or experienced by people following a stroke.
With our full orthotics and prosthetics fitting service, we are committed to helping people reduce pain, stay mobile and participate in activities they enjoy. The use of orthotics can also reduce the chances of patients having to have surgery or become reliant on care.
