Aortha announces launch of new products with Standard Engineering technology


Global medical products distributor Algeos has announced the launch of two new products in collaboration with Standard Engineering – bringing together more than 250 years of experience of orthotic and orthopaedic footwear technology.

The Aortha Salford sanding and grinding machine has been uniquely designed for the manufacture of foot orthotics and insole adaptations, while Aortha Strathclyde is designed for the manufacturer of footwear adaptions, orthopaedic footwear, leather and plastics. Both models combine super-efficient dust extraction with low noise, ease-of-use and maintenance, and meet all orthopaedic workshop requirements.

Max Sheridan, global orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) director for Algeos, said: “We are delighted to have formed this strategic partnership with Standard. They have an outstanding heritage in the engineering of robust and reliable machinery.

“They are a perfect fit with Algeos’ own Aortha brand, which has been developed to be at the centre of any O&P workshop, and work closely with all members of the O&P team in the manufacture of custom orthotics.”
