Colman Orthotics was founded in 1982 by Arthur Colman, who wanted to use his medical background to help people in a unique way. Arthur was soon joined by Ron Handkamer and John Sowerbutts, adding prosthetics to the firm’s offering. Colman Prosthetics & Orthotics has grown steadily since 1982, and now boasts 22 employees including several of Canada’s best orthotics and prosthetics specialists. At Colman, we are proud of our friendly environment. Our practice is not just a business, it is our mission, and most of our patients stay with us for decades. Our two locations allow easy access for clients in Calgary and surrounding areas, and our affiliation with the University of Calgary Sport Medicine Centre allows us to provide leading technology.
We offer prosthetic limb replacement for both lower and upper extremities. Our prosthetic patients include people from all walks of life, from children and professional athletes to seniors. We pride ourselves on our customized approach – we find the perfect fit every time.
Our orthotic service is among the best in Canada. We specialize in treating people who require orthotic intervention for foot orthotics, knee braces, and all other body bracing. We will work with you to improve your health and mobility.
