For the last 20 years we have been working together with the best orthopaedic surgeons
in the world. Bill Cashman, who specialized in the USA in orthopaedic braces and
Anthony McGuinness, a most outstanding pediatric surgeon, invited us to Cork.
Now we work with an excellent team of orthopaedic surgeons nationally and internationally.
All our braces are custom made for the patient. Early mobilization with the support
of an orthopaedic orthosis is extremely cost effective and patient friendly.
We are happy to discuss with you the type of brace that would be most suitable
for your patient. Our orthoses are designed and based
on sound bio-mechanical principles.
