The Orthotic and Prosthetic Unit provides medical equipment and support for bodies such as artificial limbs and splints. With orthotic and prosthetic, users will have more opportunities to participate in work environment, learning and social activities. The transfer of Orthotic and prosthetic services to PJSC hopes to bring wider access to facilities efficiently for citizens and individuals in need of the services. – James Kon
