Orthotics

Orthotics, also called devices or braces, are devices that aid in the correction or support of a weakness or a deformity in the skeletal or muscular system. They are prescribed for a variety of purposes.

Central Ohio Orthotic & Prosthetic Center’s experienced practitioners have the necessary skills to provide effective orthotic solutions for our patients.

Our practitioners will evaluate, measure, design, fabricate and fit the most appropriate orthotic brace for each patient’s specific needs, as prescribed by their physician.

In order to provide the most appropriate brace, we use the best available innovative technology, components and materials. Our goal is to improve the patient’s function and mobility, in order for them to have as normal a lifestyle as possible.
