  • Our History

    broken image

    Mr. Arnet Pentland, an amputee himself, established Pentland’s Prosthetic & Orthotic Services Inc. in 1954. Mr. Pentland was a driving force in establishing the Prosthetic and Orthotic program provided at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and was a former member of the BCIT Prosthetics and Orthotics advisory committee.


    Starting in Vancouver, we’ve expanded to several locations across BC to improve our accessibility. With close links to local rehabilitation centres, we work with a team of therapists to provide enhanced and specialized care. While we are focused on the future of new technologies and techniques, we are proud of where we came from and look forward to providing services for our community.

    • RHEO® microprocessor knees

    • Be-bionic

    • i-Limb myoelectric upper extremity terminal devices

    Community Supports

    We have always supported the future of prosthetics and orthotics. Pentland’s played a large role in establishing the prosthetics and orthotics program at BCIT. We continue our involvement by encouraging staff to teach in the program and by hosting students for practicums and residencies at our clinics.

    Evidence Based Therapy

    Using objective measures to document client progress over time, we can determine appropriate treatment options. We use:

    • Self-report measures

    • LASAR Alignment Tool

    • Video assisted gait analysis

    • Temporal Spatial measurement devices.

    This allows us to compare treatments and find the best suited for your needs.
