Where can I see and try on the different braces and supports?

Since many of the products we sell need to be prescribed by a physiotherapist or fitted by an orthotist, we recommend you discuss this with a specialist first. However, if you already know what you need, you are welcome to buy directly from us through this website. If you need additional help, our Customer Care Team are on the phones from 8am to 5.30pm every weekday - you can email them (click here) or phone them on 0800 31 61 81.

How can I purchase these items?

If you know exactly what it is that you are after, you can purchase it through this site or you can call our Customer Care Team and they will take your order over the phone.  

Will ACC pay for the cost of the brace or support?

If you require the product due to the result of an accident, you may be able to have this item covered by ACC. We recommend that you discuss this with your ACC Case Manager first. We are unable to charge ACC for any products unless we receive a purchase order from them.
