Making orthotic and prosthetic devices for children is totally different than making the same items for an adult. The abilities of the orthotist or prosthetist are challenged in completely different ways. The clinicians at De La Torre Orthotics and Prosthetics are educated and experienced in dealing with these challenges. Each device is designed to support the active child. Our specialties and products allow for care of children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, scoliosis, multiple sclerosis – and many other diagnoses.
