Acute Rehabilitation Unit
St. Anthony’s Medical Center offers a regular Orthotic Clinic for patients who need or already have an orthosis. The clinic is a “one-stop” service for patients to meet with a physician, physical therapist and orthotist to assess or modify an existing device or recommend a new one.
Among the evaluations performed are:
- Skin condition
- Orthosis fit and function
- Patient’s ability to put on and remove an orthosis
- Movement (standing, walking, ability to transfer) while wearing an orthosis
