About Us

The Orthotics department is based at:

Horton Wing, Level 0

St Lukes Hospital,

Little Horton Lane,

BD5 0NA,

What is an Orthosis and who is an Orthotist ?

An Orthosis is a device placed across a joint (usually) to control, stabilise or influence the joint in some way. However no joint of the body works in isolation so an in depth consideration is given to the effects an orthosis has on the entire biomechanical structure.

An Orthotist is the person qualified to assess and arrange the manufacture of these devices. Importantly the orthotist will also assess the wider social and domestic implications that a prescribed orthosis has on an individual.

We care passionately about orthotics and the benefits it brings to thousands of local people. So our mission is to provide the highest quality of care without prejudice for all clients. With this in mind we are committed to driving up standards through continued professional development and we are at the leading edge of awareness of the latest developments in the field of orthotics

The department serves the communities of Bradford and outlying districts.

We care for a wide range of conditions using orthotic devices. These include:

We also provide a wig and support hosiery service.
