Abstract

Learn the basic principles of the biomechanics used in orthoses Know the common types of materials used in orthoses Learn about the basic methods of orthoses design Understand the problems for which orthoses are used Gain knowledge about the principles used in orthoses The intent of this chapter is to provide a general overview of the principles, design, fabrication, and function of spinal, lower extremity, and upper extremity orthoses. It is acknowledged that entire books and atlases have been dedicated to this subject. Orthotics is considered an art and skill, requiring creativity and knowledge in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, pathology, and healing. Evolving into a competent clinician, who is comfortable with designing and fabricating orthoses to meet the unique needs of each individual client, requires practice of these skills and knowledge.
