Orthotic Devices

An orthosis is a device used to support a weakened, unstable, injured  or overloaded part of the body.  These are orthoses for the back, neck, shoulders, arms, lower limbs, and so forth.  Each custom made or custom fitted orthosis is prepared following a prescription by a physician.  An orthosis may consist of a single unit or an entire system of components tailored to a specific condition.
