Izzy Taylor works as an Orthotist and she tells us more about what her role involves.
I have worked as an Orthotist for four years now as part of the multi-disciplinary diabetic foot clinic. I treat those who are at high risk to prevent ulcerations and possible amputations. I also have my own general clinic and attend schools to treat children with conditions such as cerebral palsy. I prescribe various bracing solutions and footwear to alter patient biomechanics. The thing I enjoy most about my role is that I’m able to make a positive impact on patients’ lives and help them achieve their goals. No two days are ever the same. I initially got into the role after developing an interest in biomechanics and healthcare, which are the foundations of our profession. The diversity of the job means that it is always interesting and there is so much job satisfaction from helping our patients.
