Thanks to his skill and techonological advances Johnny’s prosthetic limbs and orthosis, moulded insoles, knee braces etc. have helped his clients swim, run, climb mountains – or just achieve the longed-for goal of walking across a room unaided.
“It is a very fulfilling career, hard work, long hours but giving quality back to someone’s life is priceless.” – F.J. Loock
Orthotist and Prosthetist
Orthotists and Prosthetists design, construct, and fit artificial limbs and orthopedic devices for patients with body deformities and disorders. Prosthetists specialize in designing and making artificial limbs, while Orthotists specialize in designing and fitting orthopedic braces such as surgical supports and corrective shoes.
Orthotists and Prosthetists take special care in selecting the appropriate materials and components so that the devices work properly. After the device is completed, they fit it on the patient and make adjustments to maximize comfort, alignment, and appearance. They also counsel patients on how to use the devices and proper maintenance.
