Global Prosthetics and Orthotics

It is a branch of medicine which involves assessment and treatment of physical and functional limitations of the people resulting from people and disabilities, including limb amputations. Orthotist / prosthetists are trained to prescribe, design, and fit artificial limbs and braces.

A prosthetist designs, creates and fits artificial limbs on patients who are missing a part or all of a limb. An orthotist, on the other hand, fits braces and other devices to enhance the movement and function of a patient's limbs or spine. An orthotist/prosthetist can make and fit both prosthetics and orthotics.

These are mainly used in the conditions like:

·         To control or for limiting an body movement

·         To reduce an weight bearing forces

·         To assist the body part after the recovery

·         To correct the shape of the disabled part

An Orthotist designs, fabricates, and fits custom-made orthopaedic braces, or "orthoses", and fits pre-fabricated devices, and provides related patient care and prosthetists designs, fabricates, and fits custom-made artificial limbs, or prostheses, and provides related patient care.
