Comprehensive, continuous training by industry professionals provides our staff with the knowledge required to properly instruct patients and provide targeted support throughout the episode of care.
VQ OrthoCare provides complete, personalized instruction to the patient, including patient guide booklets available in English or Spanish, as indicated by the treating physician for surgical and nonsurgical application.

In-Home or In-Office Delivery and Fitting
VQ OrthoCare’s trained orthopedic patient technicians deliver and fit the prescribed medical devices in the hospital, clinic, outpatient surgical center, physician’s office or the patient’s home.
Our orthopedic patient technicians are often requested to provide the surgeon with intra-operative or application support for devices.

- In-home delivery and fitting of products for orthopedic rehabilitation
- Pre-operative training and support to both patient and caregiver
- Delivery and fitting of the device on the patient during surgery or postoperatively
- Postoperative monitoring of the patient’s treatment while in the recovery room
