Thunder Bay is located in the heart of Northwestern Ontario, on the North shore of Lake Superior. Northland Prosthetics and Orthotics Inc. provides prosthetic services to residents of Thunder Bay and to residents of all outlying communities, covering a geographical area between Sudbury and Winnipeg. Northwestern Ontario’s landscape calls for some creative solutions for prosthetic and orthotic challenges. Many of our patients need to be able to navigate rough terrain, operate various types of machinery and vehicles, navigate remote communities with poor accessibility, and be able to troubleshoot prosthetic problems from isolated areas. At Northland Prosthetics and Orthotics Inc. we recognize the unique challenges our patients face and will work together to find solutions to help meet your goals.
