Orthotic community service

We provide a range of orthoses (artificial aids that support unstable or painful joints) including:

  • footwear
  • insoles
  • ankle foot orthoses
  • knee braces
  • spinal braces and supports
  • upper limb orthoses
  • compression garments
  • custom-made orthoses

We're based at Bowley Close Rehabilitation Centre, and we're linked with the diabetic foot clinic at King's College Hospital.

We run specialised orthotic clinics for children at Sunshine House and the Mary Sheridan Centre.
