Scope of Services

Practitioners:

Our practitioners are fully certified or deemed eligible, by ABC (American Board of Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics), to provide comprehensive clinical and technical services related to the evaluation, design, development and fitting of orthotic and prosthetic devices. Their professional knowledge and skill for providing comprehensive orthotic and prosthetic healthcare services requires them to meet specific education, experience and skill requirements. Their certification process involves meeting stringent standards of care and treatment in the following areas of competency:

  • Clinical Assessment
  • Patient Management
  • Technical Implementation
  • Practice Management
  • Professional Responsibility

To acquire these competencies and achieve ABC certification, our practitioners must undergo a lengthy and dedicated process that includes education and experience, as well as demonstration of their skill/competency by examination. In addition to the above, our practitioners are also required by ABC to maintain a prescribed amount of approved continuing education to maintain their certification and assure continuing competency in the care they provide.
