LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR
Orthopedic & Neurological Orthoses (Braces)
We treat individuals of all ages, from children to seniors. Our Certified Orthotists develop life solutions for clients suffering from nagging injuries to severe neurological conditions.
During the initial appointment, a Clinical Certified Orthotist will conduct a physical assessment, review x-rays / scans, discuss the patient’s medical history and lifestyle, examine the areas of concern and observe the patient’s mobility.
Once the assessment is complete, the specific type of orthosis will be prescribed and precise measurements or moulds will be taken in order to fabricate the personal orthotic device. The Orthotist then fits the device and makes any adjustments necessary to ensure optimal functional use by the patient.
From the initial patient assessment to the final fitting, quality and comfort are the primary goals of the AOS Orthotics team. Our skilled orthotic technicians have trained specifically in the fabrication of orthopedic braces, foot orthotics and shoe modifications and takes painstaking care to ensure the final product is made to exact specifications. In keeping with our mandate to produce products of the highest standards, our fabrication lab is equipped with the latest fabrication and testing tools.
