The Limb Fitting Centre is a regional centre providing specialist knowledge and prosthetic services to lower limb amputee patients in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

The multidisciplinary team includes a Specialist Consultant in Amputee Rehabilitation, Clinical Psychologist Prosthetists, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Rehabilitation Engineer - all complemented by a team of highly skilled Technicians.
