Wellness for every body

Orthotics

Is a mix of art, science and craftsmanship.

We provide comprehensive Orthotic cover to the Rotorua and Lakes region (including Taupo).

We hold both a DHB contract and work with ACC (Terms and conditions apply).

We can also see patients privately without GP referral.

 

Our contact with the Lakes DHB is as follows:

  • High Needs Patients (those with a disability as defined by the Ministry of Health) are prioritised with Fully Funded Assessment and Orthosis.
  • All other referred patients will be triaged and maybe eligible for reduced cost appointments.
  • All other patients are required to pay for any orthoses. Private appointments are available without referral at a cost of $130 plus any associated orthoses costs.

The Orthotic team at QE Health is an internationally trained, NZ accredited, experienced team of orthotists and technicians who treat, assess and fit the following:

  • Custom or prefabricated insoles to relieve specific musculoskeletal injuries, abnormalities, or to help with rehabilitation
  • Orthopaedic footwear 
  • Sport supports and braces
  • Callipers
  • Back supports
  • Wrist bracing
  • Trusses
  • Maternity belts.

We stock and fit various grades of compression stockings for varicose veins, travel, pregnancy, post surgical, lymphoedema and for tired aching legs.

 

We have a combined physiotherapy and orthotic Private Gait Analysis service which aims to identify any lower limb biomechanical abnormalities that may be contribution to pain, discomfort or inefficiency during physical activity.
