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.
