Up Close: Prosthetics and Orthotics in motion

No two people are the same when it comes to prosthetics and orthotics. It’s not like wearing size 8 shoes. Each device, whether it’s an artificial limb, brace, or shoe insert, is fully customized to the patient’s body and needs. As their body or needs change, new devices are required. This often results in life-long relationships between patients, their families and our Prosthetics and Orthotics team.

Each device is created onsite at Hamilton Health Sciences by a dynamic team of creative professionals using the latest technology. These photos are just a glimpse into the work done by our Prosthetics and Orthotics team.
