Since 1974, the Prosthetics and Orthotics Association of British Columbia (POABC) is the provincial association for Prosthetists, Orthotists, P&O Technicians, students and facility owners/managers. The POABC represents a unique profession that combines highly technical skills with compassionate one-on-one care. We connect patients’ needs with appropriate treatment to optimize their functionality and quality of life.



BC’s Orthotists and Prosthetists have the rare ability to connect their patients’ needs with the most appropriate devices and treatment to improve function and reduce pain.
