About Our Orthoses  

Bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, Sports Compresssion...

(Greek: Ορθός, ortho, "to straighten" or "align") is a specialty within the medical field concerned with the design, manufacture and application of orthoses. An orthosis (plural: orthoses) is "an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system". An orthotist is the primary medical clinician responsible for the prescription, manufacture and management of orthoses. An orthosis may be used to:

 

  • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilise an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason

  • To restrict movement in a given direction

  • To assist movement generally

  • To reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose

  • To aid rehabilitation from fractures after the removal of a cast

  • To otherwise correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain
