We are proud to manufacture our own range of products in Great Britain, whilst also benefiting from exclusive distribution agreements with our overseas market leading partners.

Our dedicated team of multidisciplinary healthcare professionals (Orthotists, Podiatrists and Physiotherapists) allows us to continually develop innovative and cost effective products which we currently supply to NHS hospitals, healthcare businesses and some of the elite sports teams and organisations in the UK.

We are now thrilled to be able to offer our diverse range of sports and orthopaedic product directly to the public via our online shop, with the same unrivalled customer service and support we offer to our trade accounts.

Company History

To this day Orthotix remains a family owned and run business, forming part of a portfolio of companies including Dacey Orthotic Services and Ace Feet in Motion. Collectively accumulating over 50 years of experience in the healthcare industry.

The company was originally established in 1972 to supply custom made orthotic products to the NHS, which we continue to do so, with all of these products still being handmade at our factories in Wales. 

In 2004, Orthotix was launched to offer a range of ready-made, off-the-shelf orthotic product to supplement the bespoke items already available. For many NHS hospital patients this meant that they could now be seen quicker, often with same day issue of product. This has reduced waiting times and proven to be a more cost effective option for the NHS. 

We are proud to employ over 100 local employees, many of which have loyally been with us for their entire working lives.

Orthotix is now run by the grandson of Dacey Ltd's original founding partner and over the past decade he has overseen the business grow exponentially, increasing turnover tenfold.

sports and orthopaedic bracing to the following organisations:

Testimonials

"Orthotix have been a valuable partner for me and my medical team at Welsh Athletics. We often use products from their lower limb, or ankle and foot range as part of our injured athletes’ rehabilitation programmes. Their professional how-to-fit video demonstrations are a really useful tool which have assisted our athletes on the road to recovery."

Adam Rattenberry

Lead Physiotherapist Welsh Athletics

"I’m extremely grateful for the support I have received from Orthotix over the years and I can’t recommend them enough."

Aled Davies

Paralympic Gold Medallist

"Whilst training for my last Ironman triathlon I developed a niggling foot injury known as plantar fasciitis. Fortunatley I was able to manage it effectively with a combination of foot supports which I purchased through Orthotix. I've since used their sports compression socks and a supportive ankle brace which have also enabled me to continue my triathlon training."

Andy Jones

Ironman Triathlete

I've had problems with my ankles for a long time now and it was just my luck that I managed to go over on one a week before a big charity rugby event. I've played rugby for Rhiwbina RFC with the Managing Director of Orthotix for donkey's years so I gave him a call and they sorted me out on the same day with an ankle stabilising support designed to be worn during sports.  It was low profile enough to fit in my boots and flexible enough to enable range of movement whilst offering the additional stability I needed. It didn’t improve my rugby skills as I dropped nearly every pass but it got me through the tournament, much appreciated!

Christopher Case

Rhiwbina RFC Veteran

"As a sports physiotherapist I often devise varied and individualised treatment plans for my patients. From time to time there is a requirement for post-operative bracing for functional assistance in the early stages of rehabilitation. For this purpose I have used a number of Orthotix products in my clinics to great effect."

Clare Sinton

Sports Physiotherapist

"As a full time healthcare professional running clinics in the NHS it’s really important that the bracing I prescribe is of high quality and good value. Orthotix continues to deliver on both fronts and their innovative range of paediatric products are market leading."

Edward First

Senior Orthotist

"Orthotix are my go to supplier for all podiatry related products. I’ve issued a variety of their devices, including bunion splints, gel accessories and drop foot orthoses in both my NHS and private clinics. On a number of occasions I’ve also liaised with their in-house podiatrist who has been able to offer invaluable product advice."

Gareth Bowen

NHS Podiatrist

"I sprained my knee badly playing netball and our team physio suggested I look at the Orthotix website as she knew they supplied a lot of bracing direct to sports teams. On their website I used their product search tool and video fitting guide to buy an active knee support, which is really comfortable and gives me the confidence I need to carry on playing"

Gemma Poolman

Heath Angels Netball

"I hurt my lower back during a yoga class and my GP recommended that I purchase a lumbar support for everyday use. I contacted Orthotix and their fabulous customer service team were able to suggest a selection of suitable supports. My chosen product arrived the next working day and it has really helped me maintain my active lifestyle."

Helen Adams

Member of the Public

"I suffer from painful heels so I wear silicone heel cups in my footwear to provide extra cushioning. Up until recently I have been buying these from a pharmacy in town but last time I went to buy them they were out of stock so they advised me to look online. I now buy them direct through the Orthotix webshop, which is so much more convenient as they send them direct to my house and they were even cheaper than in the pharmacy!"

Jayne Robins

Member of the Public

"Early in my netball career I suffered severe tears in both my ankles. Since then I have looked to source many options of what type of brace would suit my needs. The support from Orthotix, sourcing and supplying a specialist ankle brace has helped me tremendously. They provide the support and flexibility I need to perform at my very best whilst out on court" 

Kyra Jones

“Being a dual international playing both netball and football my lower limbs are sometimes prone to muscle fatigue. As part of my recovery programme I wear sports compression socks from Orthotix which improve my blood circulation and help me to recover as quickly as possible.”

Nia Jones

Welsh Netball

Being a personal trainer and semi-professional rugby player I'm always on the go, so when I tore my Plantar Fascia 6 months ago it was an absolute nightmare. I came across a facebook advert by www.orthotix.co.uk showcasing their Plantar Fasciitis Band and so I purchased it online and received it next day. I can honestly say it has been a godsend and allowed me to return to training earlier than I had imagined with added confidence. I can highly recommend the product and Orthotix.

Tom Lowe

British Army Rugby Player

"When it comes to sporting injuries I am quite literally the unluckiest human being alive! Through experience I've learnt to always buy direct from Orthotix as I can no longer be bothered to wait around for ages in A&E, only to be given a shoddy product. Last year my sporting interests left me needing a decent sling for a broken arm, a comfortable protective walker boot for a fractured foot and a low profile shoulder support for a damaged rotator cuff. Orthotix supplied all of these items next working day and the quality of every product was top notch. Orthotix you are my saviour!"
