Orthotics is a specialty within the medical field concerned with the design, manufacture and application of orthoses. An orthosis is “an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system.

An orthosis may be used to:

  •  Control, guide, limit and/or immobilize an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason
  •  To restrict movement in a given direction
  •  To assist movement generally
  •  To reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose
