What do orthotists do?
Your orthotist is specially trained to find the right orthotics for your needs. They are highly trained in their field and have a deep and comprehensive knowledge of the biomechanics of the human body. They will fully assess your requirements and ensure you get the right orthotics for your needs. Some common types include:
Insoles can help to alleviate a wide range of different types of pain. They are a suitable solution for patients with pronated feet, flat feet, high arch feet and arthritic pain. Properly fitted and prescribed insoles can help manage painful feet, knees, and ankles. They are also suitable for a range of foot disorders.
Patients with high risk feet such as diabetics often require specialist footwear due to the size and shaped of their feet. Orthotic footwear can be specially designed to suit your individual needs and manage problems such as swelling and unusual or different foot sizes.
Ankle and knee braces
Orthotists can provide custom-made ankle and knee braces. Ankle braces can help to protect the ankle if you are vulnerable to sprains or living with arthritis. Knee braces can help provide knee stability for a range of knee conditions including cartilage tears and ligament injuries. Some sporting activities require knee braces to support or offload specific areas of the knee joint.
Knee Ankle Foot Orthoses
Knee Ankle Foot Orthoses (KAFO), also described as a full length calliper, can help support patients with weak lower limbs. KAFO can help patients stand or walk where they otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
Spinal braces are usually fitted to remedy spinal issues or after a fracture to the neck or spine. Spinal braces are usually rigid and help keep the spine in place, and there are also spinal jackets available for patients with scoliosis and kyphosis.#
Head and neck braces
Patients with conditions such as head drop or recovering from a neck fracture may need a head or neck brace. Collars are available in rigid and soft formats to suit the individual and their needs. Helmets are also an option for people who need protection from injury during seizures or due to behaviours such as head hanging.
There are endless possibilities with orthotics, designed to support biomechanical problems with the body. Some solutions are condition-specific, such as Pavlic harnesses for babies with hip dysplasia to lightweight carbon splints to support a range of problems. Our specialists orthotists consider your individual requirements and custom design the right orthotic for your needs.
