Prosthetics and Orthotics Laboratory

As a highly specialised profession, we aim to provide you with the latest tools and facilities that will enhance your personal development.

Students of Prosthetics and Orthotics are taught hands-on clinical practice while dealing with patients in our custom-designed clinic rooms.

Further practice is undertaken in our workshops which boasts a well-equipped machine room with CADCAM facilities and the plaster room where impressions of patients' anatomy can be modified for the subsequent manufacture of custom-made prostheses or orthoses.

Undergraduate students have the opportunity to conduct motion analysis in one of three movement laboratories. Postgraduate students also carry out work on research towards their Master or Doctorate degrees.

If you are interested in hiring these facilities, then please contact us by email or call +44 (0)161 295 0043.
