About Prosthesis & Orthosis


A prosthesis is a custom-made artificial device designed to replace a lost body part, usually a limb such as an arm, hand, leg, or foot. Prosthetists are health care professionals who specialize in making and fitting prostheses. These devices are tailored to the individual’s specific needs, providing support, mobility and functionality to help them live a full life despite limb loss.


An orthosis, commonly called an orthotic, is a special brace or support designed to address musculoskeletal problems. Orthotists are specialists who evaluate, design, and fit orthoses to support, align, or stabilize specific body parts, such as the spine, legs, or arms. Orthoses can be used to treat sports injuries and conditions ranging from spinal deformities to arthritis, providing stability and increasing mobility while relieving pain and discomfort.
