Active Orthopedic Solutions is the preferred provider of orthotic services for Kingston General Hospital.

Active Orthopedic Services (AOS) was founded in 2005 to address the needs of patients who were left without services as a result of the closure of St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital Orthotics Department. Initially located in the Medical Arts Building, AOS expanded to a new state of the art facility in February 2010.

What is a Certified Orthotist?

A Clinical Certified Orthotist (CO) (c) has a minimum of eight years of education and practical training. Certified Orthotists work closely with physicians, therapists and their clients to design and fit the orthotic devices that will enhance a patient’s functional life. A Certified Orthotist treats patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Our Certified Orthotists are members in good standing with the Canadian Board for Certification of Prosthetists and Orthotists (CBCPO). They also have Departmental Assistant Status with Providence Care, St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital.
