Pediatric Orthotic and Prosthetic Services – Northeast, LLC

Pediatric Orthotic  and Prosthetic Services (POPS) – Northeast, LLC is a regional fabrication site for several Shriners Hospitals for Children, including Erie, Pennsylvania; Boston, Massachusetts and Springfield, Massachusetts. This will allow us to reduce the external expenses to other companies for fabrication.

POPS – Northeast is a vital part of the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital’s multidisciplinary approach to patient care. POPS – Northeast’s caring and compassionate staff members are all certified by either the American Board for Certification (ABC) and/or The Board for Certification (BOC) in orthotics and prosthetics. They regularly attend continuing education seminars to stay up-to-date with current practices and techniques.

POPS offers a full range of orthotic and prosthetic services, including upper and lower extremity prosthetic care, scoliosis bracing and a wide spectrum of pediatric orthotic services.

We specialize in helping children achieve their dreams and reach their highest potential. This may mean a prosthetic device specialized for sports such as baseball, hockey and archery, or for a musician needing to hold a violin bow or guitar pick.

Custom orthotic and prosthetic devices are fabricated specifically for fit and function for each child. Our practitioners and technicians are highly skilled to work specifically with the pediatric population. At POPS, we utilize a team approach between the practitioners, physicians and therapy departments to provide the maximum outcomes for our patients.

At POPS, we utilize the latest technology in the fabrication of our devices to achieve the best in fit and outcome. This technology includes 3D scanning systems. The high-tech system consists of a camera, scanner, computer-modification software and a 3-Axis Carver, a machine that cuts prosthetic and orthotic molds from pre-sized cylindrical polyurethane foam. Installed in the hospital’s orthotics and prosthetics laboratory in late 2015, the advanced technology has made the process for making prostheses and braces more efficient, less invasive and more effective.

POPS is leading the way in Philadelphia, being the go-to location for pediatric orthotic and prosthetic care.
