What Orthotists & Prosthetists Do

Orthotists are specially trained healthcare professionals who evaluate, measure, design, fabricate, assemble, fit, adjust or service an orthotic brace. They work with a physician, podiatrist or chiropractor to develop and implement a treatment plan for each patient's needs.

Prosthetists provide solutions to amputees or those who are born with a deficiency. They are specially trained healthcare providers who evaluate, design, fabricate, fit and deliver a prosthesis or artificial limb. Prosthetic devices are custom-designed for the anatomy, needs, and preferences of every patient.
