AbilityMade is on a mission to develop digital workflows that help orthotists create better orthoses.
We are a for-purpose company that partners with orthotists to provide the optimal balance between fit, comfort, prescription and structural integrity.
Why Work With Us
Better Client Outcomes
3D print means new possibilities that traditional manufacture doesn’t provide.
We help you retain full control of internal surface modifications and achieve the optimal balance between the structural integrity, material & design necessary for 3D Print, and internal control for fit and comfort.
We provide ongoing testing, clinical support and TGA approved designs.
With our team of engineers and modelers on hand, you are tapping into expertise with testing, design, materials and structural integrity. We have a library of mechanically validated designs that are clinically validated and TGA approved.
Support & Enablement
We offer tools and support to simplify the process, remove risks and minimize the learning curve.
From our onboarding process, to webinars and guidance from our in-house Clinical Facilitator, we'll set you up for success so you get to reap the rewards of time savings and efficiency that comes with digital manufacture.
What will you enjoy?
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.
Making ability a possibility. Hand in hand.
You're the experts in the human, we're the experts in additive manufacture.
Together with our team of engineers you can rely on tested designs, materials and structural integrity, while maintaining full control of the internal modifications that produce optimal outcomes for your clients.
Wherever you are on the digital fabrication journey, we have a solution for you.
