Meeting your Specialist
We are here to make this process as easy and comfortable as possible.
The initial assessment allows for a thorough evaluation of needs and discussion, questions and reviewing expectations.
For the initial prosthetic assessment and to allow for the possibility of taking a cast, please wear loose fitting comfortable clothes, shorts or short sleeves as appropriate.
For the initial orthotics assessment we may need to measure, cast or use 3D-scanning to customize your fit and maximize comfort, please dress comfortably and bring shorts.
After the initial assessment, a follow-up appointment will be arranged to customize your prosthesis / orthotic for optimal comfort and function.
We are always available if you have any questions.
There may be options to help you cover the cost of your orthotics. Please feel free to ask at your appointment.
For prosthetics there are a couple of options to help you cover the cost of your every day prosthesis, such as Alberta Aids to Daily Living program and Champs.
