Case Manager Information

The London Orthotic Consultancy (LOC) is already recognised and referred to by a considerable number of Case Managers.

LOC can help if you have any clients with the following conditions:

LOC is passionate about orthotics and their capabilities to improve lives. The last five years have seen tremendous improvements in orthotic design. The advent of carbon fibre has allowed the creation of a new range of orthoses that are lighter and less bulky but also stronger than traditional makes. Weight reduction has an immediate positive clinical impact.

Our approach to the assessment of new patients is a holistic one, we look beyond the most obvious symptoms to investigate anything that is having an impact on the well-being of each individual so that we can provide a total package of care that will optimise rehabilitation.

We are fortunate to have gait laboratories in both our Kingston and Manchester clinics. These video vector facilities provide us with the capabilities to assess, prescribe and fine-tune our bespoke orthotics for the most complex conditions. They also provide an objective measurement of the progress being made over time and allow for minute adjustments to be made to the prescription.

We are committed to providing long term care to your clients so that you do not need to worry about them. So as a standard we will always adjust orthotics post fitting if your client feels that they are not quite right.

Presentation to PPIPS

Director and lead orthotist Sam Walmsley was recently invited to speak to members of PPIPS (Paediatric Physiotherapists in Private Practice) about how LOC uses the OSKAR process to optimise its orthotic treatments for children with conditions like cerebral palsy. The PPIPS committee has kindly allowed us to share the video of Sam’s presentation to them.

At just over an hour long, it provides a succinct summary of OSKAR backed up by many patient case studies of how we use it to assess our patients, work out the correct prescription for the orthotics and then fine-tune them in our video vector gait lab.

The presentation is introduced by a member of the PPIPS committee, Gomz Murugesan, who specialises exclusively in the field of neurology and musculoskeletal conditions.
