An orthopedic brace or orthosis is a device used to control, guide, limit, and/or immobilize an extremity (arm or leg), joint, or body segment. They may be prescribed by an orthopedic physician to facilitate rehabilitation, control pain, or promote the healing of a bone, muscle, joint, or nerve injury or disorder.
Orthotics is the design, fitting, and fabrication of an orthosis. At Audubon Orthotic & Prosthetic Services, we manufacture many orthotic devices in our own state-of-the-art lab, and we also offer a wide variety of off-the-shelf orthoses. In addition, we can typically make same-day repairs to your orthosis, saving you time and discomfort.
Our certified orthotists recognize the importance of providing orthoses that meet your physical and functional needs to help you reach your goals. Throughout the process, they will take the time to ensure you get the best fit and maximum comfort.
We can make or order all types of orthoses for the neck and back (spine), lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle, foot), and upper extremity (hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder). We also offer pedorthotic devices (foot orthoses and custom-made footwear) to correct biomechanical issues in the lower extremity.
Some of the most common devices we make or stock include:
