Why Us

We believe that everyone should have the mobility to live their life to the fullest. And we want to help you do that.

That is why we have built the most comprehensive Orthotic offering in New Zealand. There is no one else that can provide you with the level of expertise, or the range of orthotic solutions that we can here at the Orthotic Centre.

Our team of Orthotic Specialists and Orthotists are all diploma and degree qualified with extensive healthcare knowledge gained both locally and overseas. We also have the largest range of orthotics – from a simple off-the-shelf product to a fully customised solution, designed, manufactured and modified specifically for an individual.

We vow to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy their life comfortably, and we work hard to support and mobilise every part of the body, for every body.
