Algeos announces key O&P product launches ahead of OT World in Leipzig

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’ experience of orthotic & orthopaedic footwear technology.

Following months of product development, Algeos is exhibiting two new grinding machines at the OT World International Trade Show in Leipzig under its dedicated O&P brand Aortha.

The machines are called Aortha Salford and Aortha Strathclyde after the two leading O&P universities in the UK.

Like all Aortha products, the machines have been designed and manufactured in the UK combining the latest innovation and technology.

Aortha Salford combines super-efficient dust extraction with low noise, ease-of-use and maintenance and meets all Orthopaedic workshop requirements. It is suitable for podiatrists, orthotists and insole manufacturers.

Aortha Strathclyde is designed for the manufacturer of footwear adaptions, orthopaedic footwear, leather and plastics. Again, this model combines extra powerful dust extraction with low noise, ease-of-use and maintenance, though it is designed with orthotists and technicians in-mind.

Aortha Strathclyde also offers a full 100mm wide scouring band facility or a bayonet fitting to increase the range of finishing options.

Max Sheridan, Global 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 industry for 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 works closely with all members of the O&P team in the manufacture of custom orthotics.

“OT in Leipzig provides a great platform for Algeos and Standard to showcase our strategic alliance and to look for new distributors to help us take the new machines to the international market.”

Managing Director at Standard Engineering, Keith Malyon, commented “We have been looking for a partner in the medical Industry for some time now in order to expand our Sales in this market.  Algeos are ideally placed and fit our brief perfectly, we look forward to a long and fruitful business relationship.  Algeos will now be dealing with all enquiries and sales for our orthopaedic machinery in the UK and Global markets."”
