The Orthotics department is based at St Luke’s Hospital and serves the communities of Bradford and outlying districts.
An orthosis is a device placed across a joint (usually) to control, stabilise or influence it 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 for a wide range of conditions using orthotic devices. These include:
We also provide a wig and support hosiery service.
We care passionately about orthotics and the benefits it brings to thousands of local people.
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 remain at the cutting edge of developments in the field of orthotics.
Referrals come from our consultants, GPs and other health professionals.
