  • What is the Difference Between Orthotics and Prosthetics?

A prosthesis is an externally placed device used to replace an absent or defective limb segment in whole or part. Orthotics is a branch of healthcare technology that deals with the design, manufacture, and application of orthoses (braces). 

In other words, a prosthetic replaces an amputated limb or body part, while an orthotic supports or braces a limb or body part. Orthotic devices are used to provide comfort and healing to a deficient or deformed limb by reducing shock, inflammation, and swelling. However, prosthetic devices are often required after a limb is lost due to an injury or birth defect.

  • What are the Benefits of Orthotics and Prosthetics?

An orthotic device protects and supports a body part. A prosthetic device restores function and symmetry to the body after amputation. For many people with functional limitations or physical impairments, prosthetic limbs and orthotic braces increase mobility and the ability to manage everyday activities. 

They provide the means to remain self-sufficient, live healthy, efficient, and respectable lives. It also enables you to participate in education, the labour market, and have great social lives. Prostheses and orthoses can help to lessen the need for professional health care, supportive services, long-term care, and nurses.

Frank's Story

If you are looking for proof of the power of a prosthesis that’s purpose-built for you, you don’t have to look much further than Frank. Since the amputation of his right leg below the knee in late 2014, Frank has shown an incredible level of determination and grit to not only get “back on his feet” but to push his body to whole new limits as a Powerlifter and regular competitor in Strongman competitions. Frank has been working with Anton and Peter over the last three years to develop and continually refine his prostheses to enable him to pursue his passion for weightlifting.
