Orthotics 
Re-imagined

 

We are a mission-driven organization working to give children with disabilities access to the orthoses they need to live their best life.

We run a central fabrication service based in Australia. We use fully digital workflows with 3D Scanning & 3D Printing of AFOs.

Why Work With Us

 

Achieve the best digital manufacture workflow that suits you 

Whether you want to plaster cast, modify yourself by hand or on screen or have us modify a scan for you, we can come up with a workflow specific to your needs. Either way, our virtual technicians precision model each orthosis based on your prescription.

Thinner, lighter, more integrated

Our AFOs are on average 30% lighter and thinner than polypropylene.

 

We can include integrated features like  heel stabiliser, forefoot posting, and Integrated joints (Tamarack, SnapStop, X-Tension, Pivot joint).

Mechanically tested and TGA Certified

We have made over 500 3D Printed Orthoses and you can be sure every orthosis provided by us is compliant with 2021 TGA regulations.


Our systematic testing & ability to work within known mechanical limits means more consistent and safer orthoses when compared to traditional draping methods.

Benefits of Working With Us

Note - We work exclusively with Orthotists.

 

Digital Workflow Benefits

  • Working with our Virtual Technicians means you get the benefits of digital workflows without having to become a CAD expert yourself. 

  • Our end-to-end process is proven to give an average 132.5% increase in weekly capacity to provide AFO’s - nearly 2.5 times as many! 

 

  • Get first time fit and highly accurate, repeatable results with our Expert Clinical Profiles. You get consistent results even when some clinicians are still learning.​

Additive Manufacturing Benefits

  • Our Virtual Technicians can do things that are hard to achieve in plaster. Get faster integration of 3D printing advancements, and access to new componentry on the market.

  • Our designs are mechanically tested and TGA certified. Our Virtual Technicians are qualified Engineers and CAD specialists.

 

  • Full TGA Compliance - We are a registered manufacturer with the TGA, and all orders you do through us are fully compliant with the latest TGA regulations.

Safety & Environmental Benefits

  • Work in a clean, safe digital environment with less workplace hazards
     

  • We keep full digital records of every order so no need to take up space with plaster casts.
     

  • Additive manufacturing dramatically reduces production waste compared to traditional manufacturing methods. Non-toxic, bio-compatible 3D printing powder is recycled to optimize usage and minimize waste.

World’s First Instantaneous 3D Scanner for Paediatrics

This award-winning 3D Scanner can scan a child’s lower limb and provide the critical images required to produce a custom-made AFO.

The 3D Scanner was developed by AbilityMade in collaboration with leading Orthotists and Universities.  It is a philanthropic success story, with development funded through family foundations at Equity Trustees. 

 

It is the key enabling technology behind our upcoming Tele-health project, which pilots a brand new model of orthotics provision to regional and remote children.

Jackie O'Connor,
O&P Consultant

'Digital workflow benefits like efficiency, occupational health and safety, repeatability and designs not otherwise possible, make it worth exploring for all O&P businesses'

 

Paul Sprague,
Senior Orthotist

'Instead of learning CAD modeling, mechanical engineering and additive manufacturing from the ground up, we have accessed the specialised capabilities of AbilityMade so that we can focus on increasing clinical services and access to appointments for our clients.'
