Getting the Right Care

Selecting the right orthotic treatment requires a specialized evaluation from a Certified Orthotist CO(c) who is trained in the science of biomechanics, the study of how the body moves. Can we help you find an orthotic solution that will meet your needs?


Elbow Wrist Hand Finger Orthoses (EWHFO)

Like elbow orthoses, these braces are used to either assist or prevent bending of the elbow but also involve other joints. These devices are often used to prevent loss of range of motion across the elbow, wrist, and hand. EWHFOs may have joints at the elbow or wrist to allow for adjustments.  

These devices may be suitable for individuals with:

  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Conditions that require contracture management

Elbow Orthoses (EO)

These braces cross the elbow and can be used to resist movement or assist bending of the elbow for progressive stretching. EOs can also be used for support and positioning.

These devices may be suitable for individuals with:

  • Soft tissue injuries including ligamentous injuries
  • Post-surgical
  • Conditions that result in self-harm
  • Conditions that require contracture management
