Even though we offer full expert consultation, it’s ultimately the patient’s preference which components we use to create their prosthesis or orthosis as we offer well refined ISPO standard foreign made and Nigeria made components
We partner with prosthetic/orthotic centres in Europe, Africa, Asia and America, which allows our patients the option of travelling abroad for further treatment in case of complexities and for those not residing in Nigeria.
As an added value service from our part, we offer information & education to patients and general public on basics and complexities of prosthesis and orthosis.
For our prosthetics and orthotics servicing, we have well-trained, qualified professionals. To ensure the quality of prosthetics and orthotics services and the safety of users, only professionals who meet national competency standards are allowed to practise with us. Prosthetics and orthotics services are important in the prevention of secondary impairments, through a combination of information, advice and orthotic treatment. Examples include the care of people with diabetes, who are at risk for amputation as a result of foot ulcers, management of idiopathic scoliosis during growth and the prevention of contractures in burns Orthotics for both upper limb and lower limbs require servicing, repairment or upgrade as the case may be. We specialise in all kinds of enhancement for orthotics.
According to wikipeadia, orthosis is an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system. Orthotics combines knowledge of anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, biomechanics and engineering. Patients who benefit from an orthosis may have a condition such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy or have experienced a spinal cord injury or stroke. Equally, orthoses are sometimes used prophylactically or to optimise performance in sport.
