What are Orthotics?
An orthotic device (commonly known as a brace or splint) is an orthopedic device that is worn on the body. The purpose of an orthotic is to provide support, protection and/or improve function. There are a large variety of devices available depending on the diagnosis and physical needs of the individual. Foot orthotics are the most commonly made device for children who attend our clinic, however, we are also able to provide other products, including hand splints and knee immobilizers.
Innovative Services NW’s Pediatric Therapy offers an orthotics clinic once a month to serve families in the Vancouver area. This clinic provides a unique opportunity for an orthotist and physical therapist to team up in evaluating children and teens. Together they consider both the orthopedic impairments and developmental needs to make the most appropriate orthotics recommendation.
