Orthotics is the practice of evaluating, measuring, designing, fabricating, assembling, fitting, adjusting, or servicing of an orthosis (brace). An orthosis is generally prescribed to correct or alleviate neuromuscular or musculoskeletal dysfunction, disease, injury, or deformity.
The objectives of orthotic treatment include providing support/stability; preventing and/or correcting deformities; providing joint alignment; and improving function/gait. Some of the goals that an orthotist strives to achieve in creating an orthotic for a patient include making a lightweight device; a functional device; something that will help a patient conserve energy; and a comfortable device that improves quality of life.
