Orthotics are the medical name for braces, splints and supports that help correct and support the function of limbs. They are designed to guide, control and limit or immobilise joints that are injured, in rehabilitation, or suffering biomechanical problems. Orthotics can also be useful to distribute weight bearing forces more evenly across joints so as to alleviate pain.
Types of Orthotics
Different materials are used depending on the condition e.g. knee problems require orthotics that not only give control and stability but also great shock absorption.
