Orthotist & Prosthetist

Orthotics and prosthetics is a specialized health care profession that combines a unique blend of clinical and technical skills. Orthotists and prosthetists evaluate patients and custom-design, fabricate, and fit orthoses and prostheses. Orthotic patients have neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders, and prosthetic patients have a partial or total absence of a limb. Orthotists and prosthetists give their patients the ability to lead more active and independent lives by working with physicians and members of the rehabilitation team to create a treatment plan and custom device. This work requires substantial clinical and technical skill and judgment.
