Prosthesis & Orthotics

Prosthetics and orthotics are clinical disciplines that deal with artificial limbs (prostheses) for people with amputations and supportive devices (orthoses) for people with musculoskeletal weakness or neurological disorders.

This course includes a wide variety of clinical, practical and theoretical learning. You will spend most of your time at the University but you will also spend time in clinical placements where you will get the chance to see real patients wearing their prostheses and orthoses. You will also get the chance to see patients at the University, within our purpose built facilities, and work with the latest technologies and equipment that are used for today’s prosthetic and orthotic devices.

This course offers the opportunity to learn through placements in prosthetic and orthotic clinics across the country. As you move through the course, you will gradually undertake a greater depth of learning and increase your competency in dealing with people, meeting their needs and deciding on the most effective treatments to offer.

You will study anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, prosthetic and orthotic prescription, and design and fabrication. You will also develop strong practical skills in research methodology, clinical assessment and the application of prosthetic and orthotic techniques. Clinical placements are an important part of our program.
