Club Feet/Foot.



Our prosthetics focus on mobility and comfort. Each component is chosen specifically for your needs and presentation. We specialise in Prosthetics for partial feet, below knee and above the knee.


Lymphoedema Treatment

Compression garments are thoughtfully selected for each patient's unique needs to effectively decrease volume, visibly enhance cosmesis, and promote significantly improved mobility and function.


Serial Casting

Serial casting is a common procedure used to stretch and lengthen muscles. Children may have shortened muscles due to limited movement, muscle tightness or muscle restrictions. 



Scoliosis is a treatable condition that involves curvature and rotation of the spine. A custom back brace is designed to correct the progression and the curve and improve quality of life.
