From custom orthotic devices and personalised prosthetics, to mobility devices for adults, pediatrics and animals, Johan Bronkhorst, is exceptionally attentive to his patients with an aim to enhance their quality of life.
Johan Bronkhorst is a qualified Medical Orthotist & Prosthetist; a qualification that he obtained in 2009 at the Technical University Of Technology (TUT).
He worked in the public sector as well as the Department of Defense for a number of years, where he obtained invaluable knowledge and skills pertaining to the specific needs of patients in the public sector. Johan then went off to join a private practice in the North West where he went on to service the influx of patients in and around the greater Rustenburg area.
In 2013 he decided to go into private practice with a colleague and is currently providing Orthotic and Prosthetic services to numerous hospitals, frail care and rehabilitation institutions.
Furthermore, he is part of a specialised multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team that provides a service to patients around the country.
Over the years, he has focused his expertise in the care of Cerebral Palsy and Pediatric Patients, as he found a passion for helping these patients.
As an Orthotics & Prosthetics practice, he places focus on the evaluation, measuring, manufacturing and fitting of orthosis, prosthesis and sports bracing to enhance the functionality and quality of life of his patients. Aside from this focus, patient education and guidance are essential for him as he believes this forms a crucial part of the patient's rehabilitation journey.
Orthotics - Orthotics are custom devices made to modify structural and functional issues that may be affecting various parts of the body.
Mobility- Mobility aids are devices designed to help those with difficulty moving around due to injury or disability. Instead of being dependant on others for help, these devices are intended to ensure a better quality of life and independence for those with mobility problems.
Prosthetics- People may lose an entire or part of a limb or body part due to cancer, traumatic injuries, amputation due to circulation issues, and even congenital disabilities. With the advancement of medicine, doctors may replace these missing parts with prosthetics. A prosthesis is an artificial device intended to restore or replace the missing body part. Some prostheses are purely cosmetic and thus have no function, while others are created to be functional.
As a Medical Orthotist & Prosthetist, Johan is hugely passionate about helping restore mobility and enhancing the lives of those who enter his practice through suitable orthotic, prosthetic and mobility devices.
