Orthoses are custom-made medical appliances used to support, align, prevent or correct deformities of a body part, or to improve the function of movable parts of the body. The Orthotic service provides assessment, prescription and fitting of orthotic devices.
HOPE provides the most economical, cost-effective devices, which allows the patient to maximize their potential. We have more than thirty years of experience to employ the latest biomechanical management techniques, materials and technology to restore function and permit normal motion. In most cases, we are able to use lightweight plastics that require little maintenance and offer long service life. Our goal is to take into account ease of donning, comfort and cosmesis. Braces are fabricated using the latest types of materials that provide support and breathability.
