Orthotics and Prosthetics Assistant
Kirsten joined V2Innovations as a part-time summer student in 2018 with no knowledge of Prosthetics and Orthotics. Upon realizing that she enjoyed this field of work, she continued with V2Innovations as a summer student, until she completed her BSc in Biology from Concordia University in May 2021. Since then, she has worked with us full-time as an Orthotics and Prosthetics Assistant helping with the manufacturing of our assistive devices and assisting the office staff when needed. Kirsten's goal is to challenge the Prosthetics and Orthotics clinical entry exam at George Brown College so she can become a clinician in this field of work.
Gillian first connected with V2innovations in 2020 when she completed a university placement with us to learn more about the world of orthotics and prosthetics. Since then, she has graduated from Queen’s Kinesiology program, registered with the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario, and is now a practicing Registered Kinesiologist. She has been working in the Therapy Clinic since June of 2021. Gillian is currently also a Master’s student at Queen’s University, researching the use of powered robotic exoskeletons for gait rehabilitation and energy optimization. She loves working with clients to improve their strength and mobility, and to gain confidence with new orthotic and prosthetic devices!
