CLINICAL SERVICES

Custom Orthotic Design Group Ltd. has been established in Mississauga since 1996 bringing over sixty years of experience in patient care, assessing for, designing, manufacturing, fitting and repairing custom made orthoses, orthopaedic appliances and durable medical goods. Our Certified Orthotists are specialists in the design, fabrication and fitting of orthoses (braces or splints) intended to prevent or correct deformities, protect a painful part of the body, redistribute forces evenly over a body part or to improve the function of a weakened extremity.
 
Patients are referred to Custom Orthotic Design Group Ltd. by their physicians, physiotherapists, nurses and other health care professionals for assessments for treatment using orthoses (braces or splints).  Each person is assessed and the most appropriate treatment plan is determined based on the unique needs of each individuals’ health, biomechanical, mobility and social needs.  People who have complications from diabetes, stroke, multiple sclerosis, trauma, head injury, overuse and many other issues may benefit from an orthosis.  

THE PROCESS

1. The patient is assessed to determine efficacy of device, device prescription and use of device(s).

2. If orthotic intervention is warranted and the patient chooses to proceed, the limb is measured and casted.

3. The device is fabricated in our Mississauga office.

4. The device is fit approx. one week after initial cast.

5. The patient is educated regarding use and function of the device.

6. The patient is reassessed to assure that there is a positive outcome. Are we doing what we need and want to do? Does the orthosis work?

7. For lower extremity devices, footwear is outlined and recommendations may be made or appropriate shoes are fit.

8. Follow-up appointments are arranged according to patient need.

9. Further involvement with P.T., O.T., or M.D. may be required.

PATIENT STORIES

I just wanted to let you know - for the first time in months and months - I am able to go for a long, long walk - because my feet are not killing me anymore!!! I am not limping at work any more either!!! Thanks so much - I feel great! Even walking 8 blocks back to the car after the last appointment with them in my shoes - I could have done a tap dance all the way - the change was so drastic!

When I saw Jim, it was for two appointments for braces he put in my shoes (that he had made recommendations about). I could walk and keep shoes on all day and I was not walking off balance. He was amazing. He took time to talk to me and explain things. My husband had gone to Jim for years for foot orthotics . I would recommend Jim to anyone.
- Ms L.M. -
I am so greatful that the heel lift for my right shoe has been so helpful. I am in less pain when I walk, I can now stand straighter, on both legs at the same time when I stand still. I should have done it a lot sooner!
- Ms. D.T -
I am a person with polio in my left leg. I 've been using Custom Orthotic Design Group Ltd. for many years. Their service is great and friendly, they know what they are doing. I am really happy with their services.
- Mr. K.N. -
Custom Orthotics has always stood behind their product. They have always treated me with kindness and dignity. Whenever there is an issue, they have repaired it right away. Friendliness is their top priority. The product is 10/10. I can't say enough and I find there is never any negative comments. I have been with Custom Orthotics since 1998.
- Mr. F.H. -
The whole process was very positive, Custom Orthotic Design Group answered all of my questions and responded to my concerns in a professional pleasant manner. I highly recommend that anyone requiring any form of custom made orthotic from a simple shoe insert to a sophisticated support such as my CROW walker consider Custom Orthotic Design Group.
