Pediatric Orthotics + Prosthetics

Pediatric Prosthetics

We have a team of pediatric prosthetists who specialize in serving kids with limb differences. A great fitting prosthesis makes all the difference for kids as they learn, play and grow. Through close collaboration with our pediatric physiatry and therapy teams our interdisciplinary approach allows our parents and their kids of all ages and diagnosis types to see incredible outcomes.

Scoliosis Care

Scoliosis is a potentially debilitating, abnormal curvature of the spine, which typically appears when your child is 9 to 14 years old. Your child’s doctor evaluates the effect of the scoliosis on back pain, breathing or any disfigurement to determine if a brace is needed. If one is ordered, your Mary Free Bed orthotist provides comprehensive scoliosis services to prevent further curvature of the spine.

Pediatric Orthotics

Our pediatric orthotists work closely with your family and your child’s physicians and therapists to provide the most appropriate orthotic technology. We continually serve children with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spasticity, scoliosis, spinal cord injury or spina bifida.

Cranial remolding

We partner with parents and doctors on the prevention and treatment of head-shape abnormalities. Using 3D scanning technology, our experts quickly and comfortably measure your infant’s head shape. If our thorough evaluation indicates treatment, our clinical experts will discuss a customized care plan for your child’s needs. This may or may not include a cranial remolding helmet.

We’ve worked with thousands of families to provide care for a wide variety of head-shape abnormalities, including deformational plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, scaphocephaly and post-operative cranial synostosis. We’re a leading provider of STARband, the most widely used cranial remolding orthosis in the world.
