Prosthetics - Clinical Services

Prostheses (artificial limbs) are external mechanical devices used for replacement of part of a limb or limb as a whole. They apply supportive forces in order to support body weight and stabilize the person. Our Prosthetist (a professional who fits the prostheses), is an expert in preparing biomechanically suitable sockets and correct alignment in order to achieve comfort, function and cosmesis.

We have expertise in the following areas:

Lower Limb

  • Below Knee (Transtibial) Prostheses
  • Socket Variants such as Patellar Tendon Bearing (PTB), Total Surface Bearing (TSB) sockets designs for Below Knee Prostheses
  • Anatomically Correct Foot and Ankle Systems
  • Above Knee (Transfemoral) Prostheses
  • Socket technology for Transfemoral Prostheses: Ischial Containment (ICS), MAS Socket Designs
  • Flexible inner socket for increase comfort with hard outer shell for proper weight-bearing
  • Prosthetic Interface Technology : Liners according to patient’s individual requirements
  • Suspension systems: Latest techniques and use of Shuttle Locks and Vacuum Systems
  • Prosthetic Management of Congenital limb deficiencies
  • Prosthetic management for those with multiple amputations
  • Pediatric Prostheses
  • Prosthetic Management of Syme’s or Partial Foot Amputation (Silicone Techniques for Cosmetic Restorations)

Upper Limb

  • Conventional Body Powered Prostheses
  • Myo-Electric Prostheses
  • Hybrid Designs of Prosthetics
  • Cosmetic and Passive Prostheses
  • Partial Hand and Finger Prostheses (Silicone Techniques for Cosmetic Restorations)

Orthotics - Clinical Services

Orthotics is the science of designing, fabricating and fitting of external mechanical devices, known as orthoses, which apply forces to support, prevent, correct and assist body segments in neuromuscular skeletal conditions. We are experienced in all the areas of Orthotics listed below.

Lower Limb

A lower limb orthosis, is an external device applied or attached to a lower body segment to improve function by controlling motion, providing support through stabilizing gait, reducing pain through transferring load to another area, correcting flexible deformities, and preventing progression of fixed deformities.

  • Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFO)
  • Knee Ankle Foot Orthoses (KAFO)

Upper Limb

Upper Limb Orthoses serve more than one purpose. They are used for: improving function, resisting motion to enhance heal, correct or align a deformity and protect a segment of the upper limb after surgery.

  • Dynamic and Static Hand Orthoses
  • Wrist Hand Orthoses
  • Elbow Orthoses
  • Shoulder Slings and Cuffs
  • Aeroplane Orthosis
  • Thumb, Hand and Forearm Orthosis
  • Functional Thumb Splint
  • Phalanx Support or Mallet Finger


Spinal Orthoses are used to support and correct deformities and injuries to the spine and neck, including scoliosis, pre and post surgical supports, fractures, sprains, sports injuries, low back pain, etc. They come in a variety of types and sizes depending on the function and support required

  • Orthoses for Cervical Spine, (Soft Collars, SOMI Brace, 4-Post Collars, Philadelphia Collars)
  • Orthoses for the Management of Low Back Pain
  • Orthoses for Management of Scoliosis
  • Orthoses for the Management of Traumatic Spinal Fractures and Post-Surgical Spinal Orthoses
  • Orthoses for Cervical Spine
  • CerviSupport

Special Purpose Orthoses

There is a variety of specialty and custom made bracing to address a variety of deformities and injuries. These include fracture bracing used instead of casting, orthoses to prevent weight bearing on an affected limb, to maintain positions in patients with tone or spasticity, or support during rehab after surgery, etc.

  • Weight Bearing Orthoses
  • Fracture Bracing
  • Positional Orthoses
  • Corrective Orthoses
  • Corrective Orthoses for the Management of CTEV or Flat Foot
  • Custom made Knee Orthoses for off-loading in Osteoarthritis
  • Fracture Orthoses
  • Congenital hip dislocation orthoses
  • Orthotics – Pediatrics

Many orthotic principles used in treating adults apply to the treatment of children as well. A child with a lower or upper limb deficiency presents the Orthotist and Prosthetist with a unique range of considerations, both practical and physiological. Most techniques used with adult amputees are downsized, sequenced in degree of complexity, modified or completely altered to match the ever-changing needs of children.
