@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 !!!

The Right Footwear for Your Orthotic or Brace - Applied Biomechanics Orthotics and Bracing

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! 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.

Now you can take your BEST FRIENDS with you anywhere you go ! Custom brace image transfers now available at Applied Biomechanics.


I encourage you to view this incredible TED TALK where Minda Dentler, a bilateral KAFO leg brace wearer challenges the 140 mile Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona, Hawaii


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 !!!


Recording our new Radio Ads today @magic1061 and @CJOYradio. Thanks to Eric and Ian for launching my new career ... not ! These guys are real pros ! I will stick to what I do best - bracing.
