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 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.
VIM Health has partnered up with Blatchford to provide you with a complete orthotics and prosthetics service. Blatchford is a multi-award-winning manufacturer of orthotics and extremely advanced prosthetics. Working with Blatchford here at our clinic, we can assist you with the correct fitting and supply of an orthotic or prosthetic device. The dual-qualified Orthotic Clinicians from Blatchford have significant expertise in recommending, measuring, and fitting people for either custom-made or ready-to-wear devices.
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.
