Dear clients, friends and medial professionals:
After a consultation with our staff, and on the recommendations of our professional associations — the Pedorthic Association of Canada and Orthotics Prosthetics Canada — we have decided to close our office for the next two weeks to help flatten the curve of COVID-19. We plan on reopening Monday April 6, 2020 if improved conditions allow us to.
During this time, we will not be taking appointments unless your needs are urgent.
We will be checking our voicemail regularly during this temporary closure and we will reach out to those of you with urgent needs as quickly as possible.
Our team at Applied Biomechanics hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy during these uncertain times. We will see you once the situation improves.

@ABOrthotics is recognizing the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. We commend the @UN for their efforts in “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”. Proud member of @CanadaOPC.
Since 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been annually observed on 3 December around the world. The theme for this year’s IDPD is “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”. This theme focuses on the empowering persons with disabilities for the inclusive, equitable and sustainable development envisaged in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 2030 Agenda, pledging to “leave no one behind,” is an ambitious plan of action of the international community towards a peaceful and prosperous world, where dignity of an individual person and equality among all is applied as the fundamental principle, cutting across the three pillars of the work of the United Nations: Development, Human Rights and Peace and Security. It is critical to ensure, in this regard, the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and create enabling environments by, for and with persons with disabilities.
How long is 23 feet ? At @ABOrthotics 23 FEET is exactly this long !!! Now what is that equation for converting feet to braces .... hmmm, oh yeah ... it is FEET x ASSESSMENT SKILL x CASTING SKILL x MODIFICATION SKILL x 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE + A GREAT TEAM = GREAT BRACES
Thanks KidsAbility for the recognition. We are happy to be your community partner working with such a deserving population of kids. Take note Guelph of the GREAT work done by KidsAbility in our community !!!
Applied Biomechanics looking forward to some world class racing @InfernoTrack on Wednesday evening. Your best chance to get up close to some of the best Track and Field athletes in the world !!!

We often use the analogy that if you don’t wear proper footwear with your orthotic treatment, it is like putting poor quality tires on a sports car – you compromise the performance.
Our tips will help you find the right footwear for your orthotic or brace!
appliedbiomechanics.com Footwear plays a very important role in the functionality of any orthotic or brace. If the shoe is not stable,it makes it very difficult for the orthotic to provide support and puts additional pressure on the orthotic because it now has to try to stabilize itself in the shoe.

What sport do you think these braces are made for? If you answered Gladiator Fights you would not be correct, but I could follow your thinking ! They are designed for Motocross to keep the riders legs and knees safe. If @ABOrthotics can help this guy, we can help anyone !!!
