Whether it’s design, fabrication, or fitting of prosthetic and orthotic devices, we do everything here on site in our downtown Cranbrook facility. We are the only CBC Board Certified clinicians in the East Kootenays.
What does that mean for you?
All services can be provided at our Cranbrook office. There is no need for you to travel out of province for treatment, or even leave the area.
What is prosthetics?
A prosthesis is an artificial limb, made to replace any body part lost through injury, disease, or a congenital condition. We’ll make every effort to ensure that your prosthesis fits not only your physical requirements but also your lifestyle, needs, habits, and goals.
What is orthotics?
An Orthosis (also called orthotic, brace) is an orthopedic device which assists and/or supports weakened or impaired joints and muscle groups. Applied to the spine, limbs, or joints, orthotic devices provide protection and support to the affected area to promote healing, build strength and improve biomechanical alignment.
Whatever your needs or situation, we’re committed to finding a solution that works best for you.
