What People Say
When I noticed my sons Plagiocephaly/Brachycephaly was becoming more severe (even after Physio) I contacted Zortex Orthotics. They were extremely professional and spoke me through the process of scanning to assess his head severity and potentially using helmet therapy to assist in correcting his head shape. There was absolutely no pressure to commit to a helmet after the scan, it simply gave us an indication on where his head shape was on the scale.
We decided to go ahead with a helmet and were very pleased with Zortex who sourced the helmet from Serkel, fitted the helmet and did monthly scans to monitor improvement.
Zortex were very quick to respond to any questions we had and happy for me to bring my son into their office for check-ups if there were any concerns with the helmet fitting. My son wore his helmet for 4 months in total and we are very happy with the results.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to any parent who is concerned with their baby’s head shape.
I was more than happy to learn from my Son’s Physiotherapist that Zortex Orthotics now had a Clinic in West Gosford making the Central Coast families to easily get their child’s Orthotics done locally, especially during the Covid times!
I am very pleased with their service right from booking appointments till getting the AFOs ready in 2 weeks time. Throughout this time, Sue communicated with me to understand my requirements for my child’s AFOs. They even happily accommodated my last minute request for the right Billy Shoes to fit the new AFOs.
I’m very happy that we can now avoid 2 visits to Sydney for my son’s Orthotics, especially during the lockdown and Covid restrictions in place.
I can happily recommend Zortex to other Central Coast families to get their Child’s perfectly done AFOs through Zortex Orthotics.

The principal Orthotist and Director of Zortex Orthotics, Stuart Kerr, has had more than 30 years experience designing, producing and providing orthotics.
Stuart’s career started at the Children’s Hospital Camperdown where he developed his passion for custom designed orthotics and working in paediatrics. His accumulated knowledge and experience saw him become Director of Orthotics at The New Children’s Hospital Westmead before becoming a director of Zortex Orthotics.
Stuart believes that orthoses should not be pre-conceived items that all look the same but designs that are produced to meet each and every individual’s needs. This idea is the driving force behind the Zortex Orthotics Philosophy.
The team of technicians at Zortex have more than 20 years experience producing custom designed orthoses. Such a wealth of experience allows us to have the confidence to expect quality orthoses. Along with the quality orthoses there is also a quality back up service with repairs and alterations on site, and available while you wait.
