SPORTS SUPPORT & BRACINGZortex Orthotics
Sports Support & Bracing
In the past, immobilisation was often seen as the best care after an injury, however studies now show that safe mobilisation in the early period after injury can allow ligaments and bones to heal faster.
Joints that are unstable due to ligament damage benefit from extra supportive braces. Joints that are sore and ache from over use feel better in a warm mildly supportive brace.
With this knowledge Zortex Orthotics has been involved in an extensive effort to source the best sports braces from around the world in an effort to prevent injury and early retirement.
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.
A simple brace can keep an athlete on the court.
We supply and fit shoes to go over AFO’s using Hatchbacks® footwear, which is exclusively designed for use over AFO, DAFO, and other custom inserts.
These shoes feature the “Easy Fit” system which allows you to unfasten the side velcro straps and fold down the entire back half of the shoe. This open hinge design makes it easy to slide in the AFO. For a secure fit, simply fold the shoe back up and fasten the side straps.
