iOrthotics designs and manufactures custom-made orthotic devices. By collaborating with the University of Queensland, iOrthotics learnt new digital nesting techniques. These allow for increased productivity and material cost savings while delivering better patient outcomes.

Investment in 3D printing solutions has allowed iOrthotics to increase its production while eliminating over 30 tonnes of plastic landfill waste annually. The company plans to grow its exports considerably and expand its reach into the United States, UK and Canada, generating up to 13 new skilled jobs.
