Our prosthetic treatment options for limb loss can help patients set goals for functional recovery and improve quality of life. Our Prosthetists put the patient first to ensure that their devices are designed and maintained to enable maximize possibilities for each individual.
Cranial remoulding helmets help babies minimize head shape differences. The helmets will not affect the babies’ normal development but will help redirect growth to a well-balanced head shape. These corrective helmets are worn full-time and are designed for babies less than one year of age.
Proper support of the feet can greatly reduce pain and improve balance. All custom foot orthoses are made on-site to correct and assist foot problems.
Orthoses are not only for feet. We design bracing treatments that can support legs, arms, necks or your back. These braces help improve function, reduce pain and help patients achieve their functional goals.
Our custom 3D asymmetrical scoliosis braces are designed to halt the progression of a scoliosis curve and promote growth into a corrected position.
