Orthotics service

The Orthotics service specialises in providing orthoses. An orthosis is an external device that supports or enhances an impaired body part. Common examples include orthopaedic footwear, foot-drop splints, long-leg callipers and spinal braces.

Orthoses are extremely helpful in a wide range of conditions where the structure or function of a body part (arm, leg, joint, muscle, spine etc) limits activity.
