Published in December 2018

On Thursday 30 November, four organisations and members of Ability First Australia, all were involved and took part in the “Assistive Technology Showcase” where innovative technologies used in the disability sector were demonstrated to His Royal Highness, Prince Andrew Duke of York, at Montrose Therapy & Respite Services.

Northcott Innovation was honoured to be a part of this event, where various organisations were able to showcase modern, innovative projects and technologies and discuss these with Prince Andrews. NI showcased the new technology that Northcott uses to manufacture Ankle foot Orthoses (AFOs) using 3D scanning, 3D software modelling and 3D printing technology through AbilityMade. NI is extremely thankful to have been given this opportunity and loved being able to discuss this project.
