ACE have been making functional foot orthoses since 2001. We have designed our own range of modular (semi bespoke) orthoses known as FiM's and manufacture a full range of bespoke orthoses including CADCAMs, thermoplastics and carbon fibre orthoses. We manufacture for the Ministry of Defence, NHS and a number of podiatrists, orthotists and other healthcare professionals.
The manufacturing process starts with an order. The order will be for modular or bespoke orthoses or footwear adaptions. For bespoke orders a cast or impression of the foot is needed and for footwear adaptions the shoe and specifications of the adaption will be needed.
Our admin team will process the order once the relevant information from the practitioner has been received. At this point the order is passed to the factory foreman and the work is batched up. Bespoke orders will be scanned, milled or molded and then passed to our team of expert technicians where they will be hand finished. If the order is for our Modular range then the technicians will construct the orthoses to the exact requirement as stated in the order.
Once the orthoses are complete they are passed to our quality department. Here they are thoroughly inspected for quality of finish and accuracy of order. Once passed they will be packaged up ready for posting via recorded delivery or pick up.
The complexity of an order will determine how long it takes to make, however we guarantee a 7-10 working day turnaround from receipt of the order (and all relevant cast etc.) to completion. Royal Mail are then responsible for the postage, but orders usually take between 2-4 working days to arrive.
