ORTHOTICS & PROSTHETICS
The Orthotics Department at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center is a unique and critical resource for providing optimal patient care to individuals with neurological and musculoskeletal disorders that impact either walking or upper extremity function.
The Orthotics Department, a unit of RRI, provides a full range of orthotic services to the various diagnostic areas. Services are provided to both inpatients and outpatients. Staff orthotists are part of the multi-disciplinary team that works together to develop an assessment and treatment plan for the clients. Practitioners consult with therapists and physicians to determine the best design for each patient. The department’s on-site location at RLANRC allows quick response and follow-up to the needs of the medical center, as well as easy access for clinic patients. We employ orthotists, prosthetist, and fitters. A full range of devices is available for legs, arms, and spine. Various designs, from custom to prefabricated, are utilized to enhance function in the most cost-effective manner. We provide excellent care to our patients.
