Career Path Forecast
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, opportunities for medical appliance technicians will grow 11 percent from 2008 to 2018, about as fast as the average for all occupations, because of the increasing prevalence of the two leading causes of limb loss -- diabetes and cardiovascular disease -- and because of the increasing rate of obesity.

The demand for orthotic devices, such as braces and orthopedic footwear, will increase as more people will need these support devices. In addition, advances in technology may spur demand for prostheses that allow for greater movement.
