In this episode of Stewarts Soundbites, Senior Associate Chris Smith spoke to Nicole Bennett, an orthotist and prosthetist at Pace Rehabilitation, the UK’s largest independent provider of amputee rehabilitation services.
Chris and Nicole discussed the advanced orthotic solutions that are changing the landscape in the management of lower limb complex trauma injuries. These can bring significant improvements in pain and function compared with more conventional orthotic interventions.
Nicole was the lead orthotist at Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court from 2011-2018 and the only orthotist in the Ministry of Defence during this period. Working in the complex trauma team, Nicole saw a high volume of young patients with limb salvage following improvised explosive device (IED) blast injury. Typically, her role was to provide orthoses to maximise injured personnel’s functional capability and reduce pain.
