The purpose of this project was to create a useful resource for physicians and clients that utilize the services at the CarePartners Orthotics and Prosthetics clinic. This resource is an informational book that provides definitions and examples of specific technology and services provided by the clinic. It specifically aims to simplify the process of referring patients to practitioners at the clinic and allow those patients to understand what services will be available to them. Although time constraints did not allow me to complete the book, I organized its beginning stages and completed the first section. I took notes on the different elements surrounding prosthetics and orthotics and learned technical terms used in the field. I also documented the technology involved in assembling the devices. The book includes pictures of such technology along with other necessary equipment for clients and descriptions of their functions. This allows clients to know what they need and to be able to ask for specific services. Physicians are also able to use the information in this book to accurately refer patients to the clinic.
