Martin Middleton qualified through the internationally recognised NCTEPO department of Strathclyde University, Glasgow in 2003 with a BSc (Hons) in Prosthetics and Orthotics. A full time post at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, London was taken up following professional certification and this post is still held but in a part time capacity. The RNOH is a national centre of excellence benefiting from a team of highly specialist consultants, particularly in the fields of complex foot/ankle conditions; spinal deformity; spinal cord injury; brachial plexus injury and traumatic limb reconstruction. As a long serving Orthotist at this hospital Martin gained extensive knowledge in these specialist orthopaedic and neuromuscular conditions.

Martin commenced private practice in 2007 and has provided consultant services at numerous private hospitals in London whilst also conducting a specialist spinal injury consultation service for the North West London NHS trust. Working for 6 years with The Wellington Hospital was a particular highlight due to the opportunity to deliver orthotic care within the largest private neuro-rehabilitation facility in the UK. Client groups were primarily stroke victims and traumatic brain injury who required extensive physiotherapy and gait re-education. This exemplary service also exposed Martin to cutting edge assistive technology equipment, including the Lokomat and Armeo systems.
