TLM's Orthotist - Revolutionising Orthotics Treatment
An orthotist is a medical professional trained in the design and fitting of orthoses for patients. In order to design a suitable orthosis, an orthotist must have a solid understanding of how the whole body moves, as well as knowledge and experience working in relevant medical fields.
Our dedication to excellence and providing the best care for our patients has won us recognition locally and abroad, receiving a total of 15 awards between 2015 to 2021. Click here to see our awards.
We lead the orthotics industry by creating treatments with high success rate using TLM's orthotic footwear and orthotic insoles.

Prof. Li Ming, TLM's founder and chief orthotist, specialises in treating patients with foot pain, knee pain and back pain caused by musculoskeletal system conditions. She has more than 20 years of clinical experiences and worked in various hospitals and clinical departments such as Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, Pain Management, Rehabilitation Medicine, Physiotherapy, Neurology and Hand Surgery.
Her experience working in these hospitals and departments led her to believe that the design of orthoses can be greatly improved so they can be used as a form of non-invasive medical treatment rather than be used simply for holding and supporting injured joints.
Therefore, to push the boundaries of the orthotics industry, Prof. Li Ming developed a unique orthotic insole and orthotic footwear treatment system for patients with musculoskeletal system conditions. Almost all patients see improvements after treatment and many recovered fully from their musculoskeletal system conditions.
