Zortex Orthotics is, at it’s core, a custom design and custom build orthotics company. We do not believe one size fits all or even one style suits all. We are a company specialising in custom orthoses for all ages, and the unique problems associated with each of these groups. Our services and products range from cranial remoulding headbands for babies to foot posture supports and everything in between, for rehab, sports, trauma injuries and orthopedics.
Zortex Orthotics’ Stuart Kerr has been providing custom designed and built Orthopaedic products, plus a range of off-the-shelf braces and supports, for over 30 years. Principal Orthotist for Zortex Orthotics, Stuart Kerr, and his professional and experienced staff will ensure you receive the best of advice and care.
Services & Products
We specialise in individually designed orthoses (braces) for all ages ranging from day 1 to seniors.
Whereas some pre-designed orthoses adequately manage problems, this is seldom the case for paediatrics, seniors or the population prone to skin irritation.
Specialising in custom designed orthoses (braces) means that the range of Orthoses we provide is extensive, ranging from cranial remoulding headbands for babies to foot posture supports and everything in between.
A significant proportion of our clients are referred for spine associated problems, be it for the management of spine curvatures such as scoliosis, post operative management or for the treatment of trauma.
Scoliosis & Spine
Scoliosis is a 3 dimensional deformity of the spine with a curve greater than 10 degrees. It affects between 1% and 3% of the population.
Sport Support &
A large range of predesigned braces are available to manage sports injuries to enable a quicker return to your sport. Each brace is individually sourced and comes with full professional back up and support.
A complete range of foot orthotics are individually designed and produced from flexible supports for sport to slim and rigid for school and business. All come with full backup and support.
Zortex Orthotics is an accredited provider for:

We are excited to announce that recent courses and meetings in Boston USA and York England has allowed us to make available in Australia the most recent innovations in scoliosis bracing. The Boston 3D System and the SpineCor Comfort Plus Brace.
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.
With over 20 years experience treating children and young adults with Cerebral Palsy Susan is a terrific addition to the team.
