Before your appointment

If you already use an orthosis, please bring it to your appointment.

During your appointment

Appointments last about 30 minutes, but can be longer.

You will meet one of our orthotists. They will assess and prescribe the most appropriate orthoses based on your needs.

We'll show you how to use and take care of your new device.

We'll arrange your follow-up appointments if you need them.

We may ask you if a student orthotist can be present during your appointment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
