Why Orthosis From Clinic :-

Patient Assessment:-

Create a comprehensive orthotic treatment plan to meet the needs and goals of the patient:

  • Evaluate the findings to determine an orthotic treatment plan.
  • Formulate treatment goals and expected orthotic/prosthetic outcomes to reduce pain, increase comfort, provide stability, prevent deformity, address aesthetic factors, and/or promote healing to enhance function and independence.
  • Consult with physiotherapist/referral source to modify, if necessary, the original prescription and/or treatment plan.
  • Identify design, materials, and components to support treatment plan.
  • Develop a treatment plan based on patient needs, including patient education and follow-up.
  • Communicate to patient and/or caregiver about the recommended treatment plan and any optional plans, including disclosure of potential risks/benefits in orthotic/ prosthetic care.
  • Document treatment plan using established record-keeping techniques.
 

 

Following are the reasons why experts are required for orthosis :-

Asses the patient requirement.

Perform a diagnosis-specific functional clinical and cognitive ability examination that includes manual muscle testing, gait analysis, and evaluation of sensory function, range of motion, joint stability, and skin integrity.

Evaluate the findings to determine an orthotic treatment plan.

Educate patient and/or caregiver about the use and maintenance of the orthosis (e.g., wearing schedules, other instructions)

Assess patient’s achievement of planned treatment outcomes.

Reassess patient knowledge of goals and objectives to ensure proper use of orthosis relative to modifications

Create a professional, cooperative working environment to improve patient care

Verify patient care by documenting history, ongoing care, and follow-up, using established record-keeping techniques.
