Prosthetics designs prostheses (artificial limbs) for patients who have undergone an amputation or present with a congenital anomaly. The prosthesis is custom designed for each individual to fulfill both cosmetic and biomechanic needs.
Orthotics treats individuals who require support for their spine or extremity. Orthoses (braces) are custom designed and fabricated to meet an individual’s needs. The orthosis may be needed to reduce pain or to provide support to an extremity that has lost function due to damage to bones, ligaments, nerves or muscles.
Pedorthics is a sub-specialty of orthotics dealing only with disorders of the feet. Pedorthists design custom fabricated foot orthoses (shoe inserts) or identify appropriate shoe modifications that can be completed to provide the patient relief and protection.
