For those seeking assistive technology, the Orthopaedic Center is an ideal destination for finding the best solutions for their needs.

The main goal of prosthetic limbs is to replace as much function of the original limb as possible. At the very least, a prosthetic limb should help an amputee take care of necessary daily activities such as eating, walking and being able to get dressed on their own. Highly advanced prosthesis allows amputees to live productive lives. These new prostheses are changing the lives of people who have lost limbs in car crashes and work accidents or through other serious injuries and diseases.

Routine skin care while using prosthetics is crucial to maintain the skin’s protective function. Any neglect may lead to painful ulcers and serious infection, which affects rehabilitation, comfort, and mobility. At Leonard Cheshire Disability Orthopaedic Center we specialize in external orthopaedics for both upper and lower limb prosthesis.
