Positions in the Gillette Orthotics, Prosthetics and Seating department include orthotists, prosthetists and seating specialists. Gillette custom-fabricates all orthotics, prosthetics and seating on-site, making this a critical component of the services we provide for patients.
Orthotics, prosthetics and seating practitioners should have previous experience working with pediatric patients, creative technical problem-solving skills, and excellent hand and power tool skills. Because the Orthotics, Prosthetics and Seating department works closely with every member of a patient’s care team, they should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively with physicians, pediatric and adult patients, families and colleagues.
Certification requirements for orthotists, prosthetists and seating specialists vary by position.
