Allied health - Prosthesis/Orthosis


Prosthetists and orthotists complete specialised education in the clinical discipline of prosthetics and orthotics.

Orthotists assess, prescribe, apply specially designed and fitted orthosis (brace or appliance) to control biomechanical alignment, aid healing and rehabilitation, and improve mobility. Orthoses are devices that are applied externally to a part of the body. The most common orthoses are ankle, foot and knee orthoses, fracture orthoses and spinal orthoses.

Prosthetist manufacture individually designed artificial devices that replace missing body parts, such as artificial limbs.

Orthotists and prosthetists today are utilising evolving computer aided design and manufacture, sensor technology and software - such as Carbosan and Pro-Shox. Advancing technology enables professionals in the field to create amazing devices such as 'energy storing foot', microprocessor controlled knee and bionic hand.

Orthotists and prosthetists in Australia are represented by the Australian Orthotic and Prostetic Association.

This category lists patient care facilities, professionals in private practice and suppliers that manufacture, distribute, design, fabricate, fit, and supervise the use of orthoses and prostheses.

Orthotic and prosthetic services and devices in Australia are funded by selected private health insurance options. Government assistance schemes are also available in certain circumstances.
