Central Fabrication Platform for Orthotists

Our Central Fab lets you spend more time with patients and less time cleaning!

Why Use Central Fabrication?

Today patients expect devices to be immediately available and tailored to our specific needs. We partner with orthotists to deliver advanced AFOs for the 21st century.

Design Freedom

Our tablet application gives you control over the design, making it easy to vary thicknesses, trim lines and other design features.

Improve Patient Satisfaction

By replacing plaster-casting with our instantaneous scanner, we’ve created an experience which is quick and easy, making the experience better for the client, their family and you.

Increased Productivity

Using our Central Fab platform you do the clinical assesment, prescription and fitting. We take care of technical work so you don’t need to do cast modifications or fabrication.

Faster Turn-around Times

3D Printing is the fastest method of producing custom-made AFOs. We can go from scan to fit in as little as 72 hours.

Specify your AFO for a custom fit

Our prescription app gives orthotists the ability to choose height and thickness of the orthosis, as well as the location of the trim lines, malleoli clearance, and other design variables. We supply orthotists with blanks, allowing them to use their preferred hinges and straps.

Below are the main orthoses available from AbilityMade. Our digital pipeline allows us to make a wide range of shapes, so please get in touch if you require an orthoses not listed here.

Articulated AFO


Supra Malleolar (SMO)




Thanks to recent advances in medical-grade 3D printing

Recent advances in 3D printing technology have made affordable fabrication of 3D printed orthoses now possible.

Our orthoses are manufactured using German-built industrial 3D printers in an ISO 13485 facility, using a process called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

Nylon-12 has high strength and excellent long-term durability, and is biocompatible according to EN ISO 10993-1 we can now fabricate high-quality AFOs at affordable prices.

How It Works


Capture the shape of your clients leg with Argus- our clinically validated 3D capture rig.

Argus is designed for wriggly kids, needs almost no training, and takes a scan in less than 5 seconds.



Prescribe the orthosis using our cloud-based app, giving you complete control of fit and design.

No more plaster casts, no more modification and no more CAD/CAM learning curves.


Print and Fit

AbilityMade models the orthosis accurately to your prescription. You approve the model, we print the orthosis on a medical-grade 3D printer and quickly send it back.

Add the finishing touches and fit it to your patient.
