PROSTHETIST & ORTHOTIST

A certified orthotist will typically use the designation CO or, in the case of someone who is also a certified prosthetist, the individual carries the designation CPO.

Our consultant orthotists and prosthetists or CPO, design and fabricate medical supportive devices and measure and fit patients for them. These devices include artificial limbs (arms, hands, legs, and feet), braces, and other medical or surgical devices.

What is the difference between orthotics and prosthetics? While both prosthetists and orthotists work with devices designed to assist you with movement and general mobility, the primary difference is in whether the focus is to assist or replace a part of the body.

Our orthotists is also certified as a prosthetist. Orthotics is typically used for individuals suffering from neurological or musculoskeletal issues that prevent normal function of one or more limbs or other body parts. Some of the orthotics include ankle foot orthotics (AFO), knee ankle foot orthotics (KAFO), hip knee ankle foot orthotics (HKAFO), ground reaction ankle foot orthotics (GR-AFO), spiral straps, shoe raise, insoles, hand splints, resting splints, cervical collars, supports (ankle, knee, shoulder, carpal tunnel, De Quervain's), spinal braces. Some of these othotics are off-the-shelf items and some requires the expertise of an orthotist.
