Orthotic Fitter

The orthotic fitter fits and delivers pre-fabricated orthotic devices. The orthotic fitter works directly with patients to evaluate their needs, formulate a treatment plan, and provide follow-up care to ensure successful outcomes. The orthotic fitter is trained to provide certain custom-fitted, pre-fabricated, and off-the-shelf orthoses, including:

  • Certain cervical orthoses
  • Certain pre-fabricated upper- and lower-limb orthoses
  • Pre-fabricated spinal orthoses, except those used in the treatment of scoliosis, unstable spinal conditions, or halo cervical orthoses
  • Pressure gradient garments
  • Trusses

Orthotic fitters may work in settings such as patient care facilities, physicians’ offices, and pharmacies.

To obtain certification in orthotic fitting, you will have to pass exams from the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (ABC), the Board of Certification/Accreditation, International (BOC), or both. To learn more about the requirements for certification, please visit the ABC website or the BOC website.
