Custom made orthoses is the gold standard for correcting gait, but traditional plaster casting can be labor-intensive, slow, and imprecise.

AbilityMade’s Sector Scale-Up Program will equip 10 NSW-based orthotics clinics with technology packages to digitally scan and 3D print custom made AFOs. This government-funded initiative aims to improve sector productivity by reducing the cost and labour of fabricating custom made orthoses.

Clinics participating in the program will receive the following free of charge:

  • 3D capture rig (instantaneous scanner)
  • Tablet with access to our Central Fab Platform
  • On-site training
  • Ongoing technical support

This program is funded by NSW Department of Industry’s Disability Sector Scale-Up grant, and coordinated by consortium of AbilityMade, The Northcott Society, and Northcott Innovation. To learn more about how this program was funded, click here.

  • Employ qualified and experienced Orthotist(s)
  • Service NSW-based NDIS participants
  • Registered NDIS provider
  • Prescribe custom made AFOs for children
  • Small to medium enterprise
