“You are an amazing team.”

—Alireza Aminlari, Physiotherapist, Target Rehab

“Tammy at OrthoCanada was fantastic to work with. She was very friendly, knowledgable, and responsive to questions. I really like that they also have a physio for us to speak with directly and to help train the clinicians at Rise. We are already seeing good results with the shockwave and are happy to have it as one more tool available to our team.”

—John Hunter, Physiotherapist, Rise Health

The following should be considered when choosing your equipment and clinic supplies provider.

Selection of equipment


We understand that the investment you are considering is substantial, can be stressful and careerchanging. We take pride in sourcing, testing and offering a variety of capital equipment and clinical supplies that are of excellent quality, affordable and supported by reputable manufactures. Our group of service professionals have the background, skill set and knowledge required to help you make the right equipment and supply choices that will best meet the needs of your clinical environment and services being offered. If you’re still unsure, we offer product trials and clinical training for certain pieces of capital equipment.

Logistics considerations and warehousing capabilities


One of OrthoCanada’s key strengths is our logistics knowhow and capability. Our experience has taught us that clinic openings are not linear projects – they are complex, stressful and take more time than envisioned to execute. OrthoCanada also warehouses a large inventory of clinical supplies and capital equipment which means that we can fulfill orders on time and efficiently. From executing a simple dock delivery to a more complicated one including installation of equipment, let our logistics team carefully organize the delivery service you require so that it happens in an effective and successful way.

Financial considerations


One of the concerns clinic owners have about opening a new practice is how to maximize the return on their investment. It’s important to us that you are investing your funds in the right products, which is why we take pride is selecting products that are supported by a solid and extensive manufacturer’s warranty. OrthoCanada also works closely with a leasing broker that can help you understand the financial benefits of leasing equipment versus buying. The tax benefits of leasing and affordable monthly payments can make it possible for therapists to start their own practice or acquire product that they may not be able to afford to purchase.
