An orthotist and a prosthetist design, make, and fit appliances for body deformities and missing limbs following the prescription of a physician. These appliances include artificial arms and legs, neck, back and leg braces, and surgical supports.
An orthotist specializes in planning, making, and fitting orthopedic braces and similar devices such as surgical supports and corrective shoes; these are used to support weakened body parts or to correct physical defects.
A prosthetist specializes in planning, making, and fitting artificial limbs. The orthotist and prosthetist follow basically the same procedures in their work although each deals with different abnormalities, designs, and patients.
At Combined Medical Services Group and Pediatric Orthotic & Prosthetic Services, we also specialize in ocular prosthetics and maxillofacial restorations, as well as correcting positional plagiocephaly in infants.
