Orthotic and Prosthetics

An orthosis is a brace that is worn on the outside of the body to change the structural and functional properties of the neuromuscular and skeletal systems. According to the World Health Organization, a prosthetist and orthotist is a healthcare practitioner who assesses, measures, designs, manufactures, maintains, and fits both orthoses and prostheses to patients. They collaborate with other clinicians to design a prosthesis that is appropriate for the patient's physical condition.
