About orthotics

When you need an orthosis, the answer may not be an easy one. From a drugstore brace to an orthosis made just for you, the variables are nearly endless. This site was designed to help clarify the differences and help you start a conversation with the clinicians that work with you. Our goal at Ottobock is always the same, though – to help you be more independent and mobile in all that you chose to do.
