Neuro Orthotics –
Orthotic devices for neurological conditions are generally custom manufactured. These devices are often complex and require careful assessment and prescription together with a team of therapists who share the special interest.
Children with congenital disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy
At Chin & Partners we attend to neurological conditions with a holistic approach. Many of these individuals will require additional equipment provision which can include complex seating and positioning as well as walking aids. A big portion of the neurologically affected population includes children with congenital disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy. It is essential that these kids are attended to timeously and regular follow up and adjustment is crucial to a successful outcome.
Assessments are generally done in conjunction with the physiotherapist, parent and carer. We prescribe custom orthotic devices which includes sensorimotor orthotics, custom double system ankle foot orthoses, knee ankle foot orthoses, reciprocating gait orthoses and spinal orthoses. Conditions treated includes cerebral vascular accidents (stroke), cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological conditions.
