About Orthotic and Prosthetic

Prosthetic is a specialty within the field of health care technology concerned with the design, manufacture and application of prostheses. Prosthesis (prosthetic device/product): externally applied device used to replace wholly, or in part, an absent or deficient limb segment. Common examples are artificial legs or hands.

Orthotics is a specialty within the field of health care technology concerned with the design, manufacture, and application of Orthosis. Orthosis (orthotic device/product): externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal systems. Common examples are braces, splints and supports.

Prosthesis/orthosis enables a person with disability or functional impairment to remain active, productive and independent, participate in society and lead a healthy and dignified life. A good quality orthosis/prosthesis when appropriate to the user and the user's environment has a significant impact on the level of independence of the user and reduces the need for formal support services.
