Medical - Legal Reports 

Medico-legal report writing is another service OPS has to offer.  Our Prosthetists and Orthotists work in conjunction with other health professionals (including our own rehabilitation consultant and physiotherapist) to assess each case individually.

OPS routinely provide comprehensive reports.  We work for claimants or defendants as well as on joint instructions.  Prosthetic's is technologically complex and current costs can be prohibitive with future costs continually increasing.   History shows many individuals are grossly under-reimbursed for their medical needs.  This is unfortunately results in their prosthetic costs far exceeding the funds available to them, particularly as technology advances. A report is furnished following an initial examination and assessment of the patient at the request of the solicitor on behalf of the plaintiff or the defense.  Our reports include device recommendation for the patient.  It can include current and possible future prosthetic or orthotic treatment and contains cost estimates for the patients lifetime.

To assist formulating this report we use video gait analysis and activity monitor data where possible to validate prescription and lifecyle criteria.  It report usually takes around four to six weeks, following the consultation.  However, please let us know if the report is urgent and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
