The Orthotics Profession
The Orthotics profession specializes in the design, fabrication and fitting of orthoses (or orthopaedic appliances). A Certified Orthotist performs clinical evaluations and custom-designs corrective solutions for patients who have been prescribed an orthopaedic treatment due to conditions involving muscle and/or bone impairment, disease or deformity. Some examples of common orthoses are custom foot orthoses, knee braces, ankle-foot orthoses, upper extremity braces, hip, neck and spinal braces.
Why is it important to see a Certified Orthotist for the provision of an orthosis (or orthopaedic appliance) and for orthotic care management?
Entrust your orthotic care to an experienced, professional, Canadian Board Certified Orthotist – one who will provide you with the highest quality in custom orthopaedic appliances and orthotic care management.
In order to become a Certified Orthotist, and to receive designation from the Canadian Board for Certification of Orthotics and Prosthetics (CBCPO), certified members of Orthotics Prosthetics Canada (OPC) receive a thorough post-graduate education in orthotic clinical and technical theory and methods. A two-year, supervised clinical internship is a further requirement. This is followed by a national certification exam that demands the highest professional standards be met. Mandatory professional development and continuing requirements keep Certified Orthotists current with the latest research and technology available.
