Orthotics is a broad term used to identify medical devices which support, correct and protect extremities of the human body. Many people will identify with the term "foot orthotic", but there are also Ankle Foot Orthotics, Spinal Orthotics and Wrist elbow Orthotics.


Orthotics are mainly divided into upper and lower extremity devices. The Orthotic and Prosthetic practitioners consulting at the facilities are well versed and experienced in the majority of upper and lower extremity orthotics. ​

Orthotics are classified as medical devices, and it's for this reason that certain precautions be taken when we measure, manufacture and fit these devices.
