What Orthotists, Prosthetits & Pedorthists Do
What do we do?
Orthotists are specially trained healthcare professionals who evaluate, measure, design, fabricate, assemble, fit, adjust or service an orthotic brace. They work with a physician, podiatrist or chiropractor to develop and implement a treatment plan for each patient’s needs. Learn more.
Prosthetists provide solutions to amputees or those who are born with a deficiency. They are specially trained healthcare providers who evaluate, design, fabricate, fit and deliver a prosthesis or artificial limb. Prosthetic devices are custom-designed for the anatomy, needs, and preferences of every patient. Learn more.
Pedorthists design, manufacture, modify and fit foot orthotics, custom footwear, and some ankle and foot braces. A pedorthist are integral here at Scheck & Siress, providing comfort to patients with painful conditions of the foot and ankle. An orthotic made by a pedorthist will commonly be used for treatment of conditions like overpronation, overuse conditions, or piriformis syndrome, and many others. Learn more.
