Fitting for Assistive Devices
Ready-made and custom-fit slings, harnesses, splints, braces and carts are often a part of the rehabilitation process. Slings and harnesses may be used to support weak patients by reducing weight bearing and avoiding falls. Splints and braces are used to support an injured limb during healing, to correct a deformity or to improve limb use. Carts are fitted to patients that are paralyzed or unable to walk without full support.
