Trulife provide orthotic clinical services, orthoses and custom made footwear to NHS Trusts across the UK. Within these services we prescribe and provide devices that support, protect or improve the function of a limb.
We manufacture custom designed products to specific patient requirements. Most patterns and designs are created in-house. Our modern central fabrication units are in Birmingham and Sheffield have teams of skills technicians making orthoses in a wide range of materials extending from carbon and glass fibre composites, through to modern thermoplastics to the more traditional metals and leathers, which are still appropriate for some of our patients.
Our Birmingham facility houses our research and development gait analysis laboratory, with a force platform and video-based motion analysis systems. New materials and products are tested to validate function. We use the laboratory for the assessment of our more complex patients. The laboratory is also used to facilitate the training and education of our clinical staff.
