Patient Education

At Sunshine Prosthetics & Orthotics, we believe knowledge is power and we’re here to empower you.
Understanding your device, whether it is  prosthetic or orthotic, will help you learn to adapt to it faster.  Know what may cause a problem, how to deal with it, what to expect, how your device works.
To that end, we’re providing you with:
  • Glossary of technical terms and abbreviations you may hear regarding prostheses or orthoses and related medical conditions
  • Literature on research and use of prosthetics & orthotics and health information available for you to download
If you have additional questions, please contact us, we’re here to help you help yourself.
