The Prosthetics and Orthotics Department was established in 1981 and provides orthotic and prosthetic services to patients.
Located within the Foot Care and Limb Design Centre, the Prosthetic and Orthotic Department comprises of clinical rooms and a gait room for amputee rehabilitation. In addition, there are four specialised workshops enabling efficient on-site fabrication and fitting of customised prostheses and orthoses.
We attend primarily to inpatients at TTSH but also at TTSH Rehabilitation Centre @ AMKH and KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Outpatients are seen at the Foot Care and Limb Design Centre and in the Orthopaedic Clinic located at Clinic B1A. Clinics are also held monthly at Margaret Drive Special School and at the NUH Paediatric Clinic.
Services provided by our department include the measurement, fabrication and fitting of orthoses, prostheses, wheelchairs and mobility aids and custom-made shoes.
