What/ Who is an Orthotist?

An orthotist is a healthcare professional who makes and fits braces and splints (orthoses) for people who need added support for body parts that have been weakened by injury, disease, or disorders of the nerves, muscles, or bones. They work under a doctor's orders to adapt purchased braces or create custom-designed braces.

What is an Orthotic Device? (Orthoses)

Orthotic devices, also called orthoses, are braces that help support weakened muscles while walking. They also enhance comfort and help slow the progress of contractures (tightened muscles or tendons that become shorter over time).

Orthotic devices can be worn at any time of the day or night. Use of a specific orthotic device depends on the patient’s type of muscular dystrophy and muscles affected.
