Orthotics are used for many different reasons. For example, an orthotic device is used to prevent or correct a deformity of a limb, protect from or stabilize an injury, compensate for weak muscles and more.
At CEPO we use both “off the shelf”/“already made” orthotics and Custom made orthotics depending on the need in the individual case. Orthotics are sometimes also referred to as Braces. Orthotics can be made from many different materials depending on purpose. Examples of materials are Thermoplastics, Carbon fiber and resins. Below is a list of the most common types of Orthotics used at CEPO.

S.W.A.S.H® stands for Standing Walking And Sitting Hip brace.
It is usually used for children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) to aid in sitting and walking. It prevents scissoring of the legs when standing and walking. It also reduces the risk of hip luxations which are common in CP. When sitting, the brace adds trunk stability so that the child might not need to use the hands to sit stable. The child can then use the hands more freely for other activities.
