Improved Patient Mobility with Our Custom Orthotics

As a Certified Orthotist (Orthotic Specialist) we make orthotic devices (or orthoses), which are used to stabilize, correct and/or restore function to impaired limbs and body joints. We specialize in Custom Orthotic bracing from head to toe. We work with patients of all ages from our pediatric population to our senior population, and all those in between.

We biomechanically assess each patient to fabricate custom-made upper limb, lower limb, spinal orthoses and custom made foot orthotics based on each individual patient’s needs. These Orthoses are often prescribed for each patient by a physician, therapist or orthotist. An orthosis is used on either a temporary or permanent basis, depending upon your individual diagnosis.

Orthoses Made of Lightweight Thermoplastics
At Action Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc., our mission first and foremost is to provide you with lightweight, comfortable orthotic braces so you can regain maximum function and independence. Most commonly fabricated from plaster casts made of each patient's affected limb, most orthoses are made of lightweight thermoplastics. However, they can also be made of other high-tech materials, including carbon fiber and titanium. Some orthoses also utilize sophisticated electronics to perform their rehabilitory functions.
Custom Fabrication
At Action Orthotics & Prosthetics we most commonly hand cast our patients to achieve the most desirable patient mold. Majority of our Orthoses are modified and fabricated in out on-site lab by the Orthotist that initially assessed you. This combination assures you the most comfortable and functional fit possible.
