Orthotics – East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust

Orthotics is a service that provides devices called Orthoses. These are usually given to help to prevent or correct deformity and/or improve function. This can be as a result of injury or due to the way our bodies alter over time.

An orthosis is an external support used to:

  • support limbs and joints that are paralysed or weak
  • prevent contractures (joint stiffness) by holding the joint in the best position
  • enhance alignment to improve posture

This service is part of East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.  It is provided at Eastbourne District General and The Conquest Hospital.
