Motion Analysis Lab
Our Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory is a leading center for the evaluation of movement and motor skills in children with motor disabilities. The analysis provides details of the joint movements, foot pressures and muscle activity to help doctors determine the cause of gait abnormalities, plan appropriate treatments and track children’s progress as they grow and age.
Prosthetic and Orthotic Services
Children with debilitating musculoskeletal conditions may have hope for a better quality of life through the use of orthotics (braces and other support devices that improve the function of disabled body parts) or prosthetics (artificial limbs or other body parts). We provide in-house prosthetic and orthotic services, evaluating the personal needs of each patient and custom fitting the appropriate, most technically advanced devices.
