Patient appliances (orthotics)

Orthotics is the design, manufacture and application of devices that are added to the outside of your body.

We provide a range of orthoses, braces and specialist footwear to:

  • help with your movement
  • correct deformity
  • relieve pain or discomfort

We have a small team of orthotists.

Orthotists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

We assess, measure, provide and fit your device. We'll plan a prescription to suit your needs.

Research and clinical trials

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
