Nigel Hendrikse - Hamilton

 In 1993, whilst on duty as a Policeman in Gisborne, I suffered a stab injury to my spinal cord. As a result of this injury one of my difficulties I face is weakness and lack of control in my right leg. In order for me to walk safely, ACC funds the modification of shoes for me.

 For the last 10 years, Orthotist Colin Storey has looked after my footwear needs. In order to stabilise my ankle, it is vital that the calliper mechanism is designed and constructed precisely to avoid soft tissue damage to my leg.

Colin and the team at Orthotic House go to extreme lengths to find the aids that best suit my condition. Currently my footwear is imported from the USA, and modified in Hamilton. The team are friendly, punctual and very competent. I look forward to them satisfying my special footwear needs for many years.

Lyllian Rose Sorenson - Hamilton

I have struggled for many years with unsatisfactory footwear from another source but from the moment I walked in the door of Orthotic House I received excellent care. The staff are always friendly, professional and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. I am on cloud nine! It's wonderful to have some shoes that actually fit me, are comfortable and I can walk in without discomfort.

Alison Mallett - Hamilton

My 7 year old daughter Isabel has mild Cerebal Palsy and has been wearing splints/AFO's on both legs since she was a toddler.  In all the time we have used the services of Colin and Janeen at Orthotic House.

Isabel has new splints made a couple of times a year and has also had night splints and shoe inserts developed for her. I have always found the staff to be efficient, knowledgeable and helpful, and they have always delivered a great product as promised.

It can sometimes be difficult to convince a small child that it's OK to wear splints but Colin's personality makes him a great professional to deal with. Isabel actually looks forward to seeing him when new splints are to be made!

The team are always warm and welcoming and as a parent I appreciate how well they listen and advise me on the best options for my daughter.

I have no hesitation in recommending their service as I am sure they are the best in the Waikato.
