With over 600 types of upper and lower extremity orthoses currently available, our experienced practitioners can custom fit and fabricate a range of orthotic devices in materials such as metal, carbon graphite, and thermoformed plastic. Each orthosis may consist of a single unit or an entire system of components tailored to a specific condition in your knee, ankle, foot, hip, spine, or wrist. Varieties of knee-ankle-foot and ankle-foot orthoses both correct and protect joint and muscle impairments, while upper extremity devices focus on supporting your shoulders, elbows, and wrists.

Horton’s orthotists also regularly fit cervical orthoses specially designed for your neck. We are experienced in selecting and fabricating the most therapeutic body jacket or other type of spinal orthosis for your particular injury or disability.
Post-fracture bracing is another aspect of orthotic patient care. If you experience a bone fracture, our custom-made bracing systems allow you to transition that bone back into regular use after your primary cast is removed. We further specialize in pediatric orthotic care needs such as reciprocating gait orthoses, standing frames, parapodiums, custom wheelchair seating, hip abduction, and other kinds of orthotic splints.
Since Horton’s Orthotic & Prosthetic Lab was established in 1981, our primary mission has been to help our patients overcome the effects of disability and restore our patients to their highest level of independence and participation in society. We are committed to offering the most thorough and skilled rehabilitation services possible to patients of all ages who come to us for assistance, providing a lifetime of support.
Patient education is very important to us. After we provide you with your custom orthosis, we demonstrate how to use and care for your orthosis, and establish both an introductory and long-term schedule of wear as well as expectations for follow-up care. We also ease apprehension, offer encouragement, suggest support groups and other helpful resources, and involve your family in the overall recovery program.
