Orthotics

Orthotics refers to the medical speciality of using artificial devices in order to support, align, prevent, or correct the function of moving parts of the body. These can often be called splints, braces or calipers.

Our clinicians have a range of stock and bespoke orthotics options to prescribe, to ensure that patients have the most current, applicable and light weight orthotics available. We have strong links with leading suppliers and our own factory in Glasgow which allows us to offer custom made insoles, footwear and splints.

In addition to traditional Orthotic production we utilise cutting edge production methods such as 3d printing for the manufacture of insoles. 

Our orthotists treat patients across the NHS and privately at our Glasgow clinic where we offer the following treatments:

Our orthotic team regularly attend conferences and training events to ensure patients receive the most modern and suitable care. All our clinicians are registered with HCPC and are certified with Disclosure Scotland.

We are experts in the use of Carbon fibre AFOs and KAFOs, Silicon AFOs as well as stance control devices such as the Emag and FreeWalk from OttoBock.

Onsite we have the full compliment of Turbomed Xtern trial kits including the paediatric version allowing you to test and feel the benefit this unique device provides.


We have a range of orthotic products available and you can view these as examples of what we may recommend. Please note that it is essential to see a qualified Orthotist for an assessment before buying an Orthotic product for your first time. If you think Orthotics may help to improve a condition you have, book an assessment online or contact us for more information.
