Emphasis is upon evaluation for and fitting of custom splints, braces and devices which enhance function in weakened or dystonic/spastic limbs or spine. Prosthetic evaluation and maintenance services are also available within this setting. Attention is paid to both cosmetic issues, maintenance and evaluation of indications for continued splinting.
