Orthotists and allied health professionals, 

We are asking for your assistance. This research aims to develop a new self-report outcome measure for lower limb orthosis users. We are conducting a national survey to gather information from orthosis users across the country, and we would like to invite your patients to participate. The survey can be taken online, or we can send your patients a paper survey to complete. Eligible respondents will receive $50 for taking the survey. This is a unique opportunity for us to improve your ability to measure patient outcomes and learn more about how patients use their orthoses.

To successfully complete this project, we ask that you help us get the word out. We would like to send you free informational materials (posters, flyers, and business cards) that you can post in your clinics and share with your patients. Please send an email to with your name and clinic address, and we will send you the materials to share with your patients.

Thank you in advance for your help, and we look forward to hearing from you.
