The BHR orthotics service provides a range of orthotics, allowing us to help and support other services both at the hospital, and in the community. The orthotics service can be accessed through a referral from a hospital consultant or a Redbridge based GP and sometimes your therapist can also refer.
Orthotics are devices that assist different parts of the anatomy to mobilise or immobilise the body’s function. For example, upper and lower limb braces, abdominal, spinal and cervical supports, wrist splints, collars, knee brace and foot orthotics.
