Many children and teens who have disabilities require orthotics, prosthetics and seating technology services to help manage their conditions. At Gillette Children’s, kids can work with experts who provide special technology for disabilities, including customized equipment designed just for your child. Through collaborations with therapists and other specialists, our certified orthotists, prosthetists and seating practitioners support full patient care.
To meet your child’s needs, our internationally recognized providers work in teams to develop custom treatment plans that might include orthotics, prosthetics and seating devices, such as artificial limbs (prostheses), braces (orthoses), wheelchair seating and protective headgear.
Bradley Fisher, Manager of the Orthotics, Prosthetics and Seating Department, took us on a tour of the collaborative workspace. See the video above.
