  • Prosthetics - Lead an active life - If you’re a new amputee (or a friend or family member), you have many questions. What happens next? What can I expect? Can I resume activities I used to enjoy? Many of those questions are best answered by your prosthetist and the rest of your health care team as they create your treatment plan.
  • Orthotics - Taking the informed step - The science of orthotics is broad, encompassing everything from simple braces for your wrist through complex, custom-designed products that can help people walk farther and with more stability and flexibility. The latest advances are pushing the boundaries for people who have been limited to wheelchairs or rigid braces. Understanding a bit more about the mechanics of gait, or how we walk, can make it easier to compare various choices and have a meaningful conversation with your clinician.
  • Mobility - Increase your comfort - The science behind helping to overcome physical mobility limitations is always evolving. New products, new techniques and new learning can offer people more independence at any age. Approaches may change through practical application of new theories, too. For you, that means that a product that worked well a few years ago may be updated or replaced with something even better. Or, your personal needs may have changed. With that in mind, the following overviews help provide a broad, basic understanding of some of the latest approaches to making sure people are positioned comfortably and well.
