The Queen Alexandra for Orthotics, Prosthetics and Seating helps people of all ages overcome physical disabilities and mobility challenges. We offer the widest range of accredited orthotic, prosthetic, and seating assessments, in-house manufacturing facilities, and fitting services on Vancouver Island.
Using braces called orthoses, our orthotists care for patients affected by a wide range of disabling neuromuscular-skeletal conditions such as cerebral palsy, scoliosis, club foot, diabetic neuropathy, CVA(stroke) and sports injuries.
Our prosthetists work with patients who have or need an artificial limb. We adjust the fit and alignment of the prosthesis while the patient is undergoing gait training; and then continue to follow the patient after discharge to provide ongoing maintenance and replacement when required.
Working closely with the patient, their family, and care team our clinicians address seating, positioning, and wheelchair needs of patients with a variety of conditions. We see patients with muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, brain injury, neuropathy, and aging clients with increasing mobility needs, to name a few.
As foot orthotic and footwear experts; our Pedorthists assist individuals in alleviating pain and improving lower limb function through the use of custom orthotics and shoe modifications. We typically see patients with diabetes, sports injuries, leg and foot pain, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, toe deformities and foot ulcers.
