Orthotists and Prosthetists

Work Environment

Most prosthetists and orthotists work regular five-day weeks. There is very seldom any need for overtime or evening work. Working conditions are usually good. Offices, examination rooms, and fitting rooms are clean, well lit, and well ventilated. If the prosthetists and orthotists fabricate the devices themselves, however, they may also spend time in a lab or brace shop. These areas typically do not offer ideal working conditions; they may be hot, cluttered, dusty, and loud with the sounds of machinery.
