The orthotist-prothetist plays a key role in the rehabilitation process. He intervenes when a client requires the use of a brace or a prosthetic device following the doctor's recommendation. The orthotist-prothetist follows the doctor's referral to fabricate and/or adjust the orthotics, brace or prosthetic device to best suit the needs of the patient.
The orthotist-prothetist has knowledge in the area of biomechanics as well as in the different resistive materials, which gives him a certain expertise in the fabrication of functional and quality orthopedic braces. The prosthesis and orthosis are custom made for each patient in order to respect their individual needs.
