Orthotic practitioners at UW Health evaluate for and design orthoses to fit patients who need protective support or correction of impairments due to disease, deformity or muscle/bone impairment.
The UW Health Orthotics staff provides orthoses to control biomechanical alignment, protect or support a body part, assist rehabilitation, reduce pain and improve mobility.
Orthotists at UW Health assess, design, manufacture and fit appropriate orthoses to suit patients' unique needs. Our professional staff and patient care facilities are accredited by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics.
The ultimate goal of orthotic treatment is to provide the patient with support, protection and increased ability to perform daily activities.
