Orthotics

Orthotics is the science and practice of assessing, measuring, and fitting of orthoses to assist weakened joints, realign joints, to support and reduce pain. The word orthotist comes from the latin root ‘Ortho’ which means to straighten.  Orthotists look after people whose body doesn’t work properly.  They may have a genetic condition, arthritis or recently had an injury which has resulted in a fracture to a bone.  Orthotists may provide an orthosis which can help someone walk better, realign their body part to reduce force or allow an injury to heal. Prosthetist/ orthotist are the smallest allied health professional group.  Currently there are 1028 registered to work in the UK. The discipline covers prosthetist and orthotist and although some clinicians dual practice the majority focus on one speciality.  Orthotists often work within hospitals or an outpatient department and can see babies from a couple of days old to adults in the 100s.  The workload is varied and fast paced within clinic.

Team

Our team of Orthotists maintains a training regime that ensures they are up to date with the latest technologies and treatments. This means that each patient can be provided with appropriate consultation, optimised outcomes, and appropriate plan. We have access to scanning in many of our clinics with measures for the effectiveness of chosen devices and treatments regimes.     The Halo Medical clinical team consists of 13 registered orthotists and 2 limited orthotic practitioners.  The team has a mix of experienced and graduate clinicians.  This mix of experience gives the team a great opportunity to share outcomes and learn from each other.

Halo Medical have several clinicians who specialise in paediatric patient care, the team includes a diabetes specialist orthotist and a scoliosis specialist.  All the members of the clinical team can spend time within our manufacturing facilities to build confidence and knowledge on the different manufacture techniques used by the technical team.

The clinical time meet twice a year for training and continued professional development update sessions- during these training sessions outside speakers come to share research and clinical and product information with the clinicians.
