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

Get first time fitment, precision manufactured exactly as prescribed

Our Virtual Technicians precision model each orthosis for you based on the 3D Scan and your prescription. 

 

We accept a range of workflows, whether you want to still plaster cast and do mods then let us fabricate, or scan and do your mods digitally, or just send us an unmodified scan and we take it from there.

Thinner, lighter, more integrated

Our AFOs are on avg 30% lighter and thinner than polyprop

 

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 are the only Digital Fabrication Service in Australia registered with the TGA.

 

Every order you do through us is fully compliant with the latest 2021 TGA regulations.

3 - Safety & Environmental Benefits

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

  • We keep full digital records of every order. We can easily do re-prints or minor adjustments for any historical order. 
     

  • 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.

We are constantly developing new 3D Printed AFO options. 

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.'
