What is an Orthotist?

An orthotist measures, designs, fabricates, fits, or services orthoses, and/or assists in the formulation of orthoses.

A Certified Orthotist or CO is an Orthotist who has passed the certification standards of The American Board of Certification in Orthotics & Prosthetics (ABC) or The Board of Certifcation in Orthotics (BOC) and maintains certification through mandatory continuing education program and adherence to the Board's Code of Professional Responsibility.
