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. To learn more, visit: www.oandpcare.org/OrthoticCareFaq.

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. To learn more, visit: http://www.OandPcare.org/ProstheticCareFaq

Pedorthists design, manufacture, modify and fit foot orthotics, custom footwear, and some ankle and foot braces.
