Custom Orders

Anatech offers custom manufacturing on many of our AnaPrene, AnaTex, webbing and elastic supports.  All customs are manufactured in our warehouse based in British Columbia, Canada. Contact customer service to discuss your custom options.

  • Hard copies with all specifications and measurements are required for all custom orders and once processed cannot be cancelled.  Please note: Measurements should be taken by qualified fitter for acurate fit.
  • Please indicate if quote required prior to manufacture
  • The patterns for custom orders are kept on hand for 12 months; it is essential that you give your patients name at time of ordering as they may need to reference for re-ordering or alteration purposes.
    • Please note: Apart from the fact that the patients sizing may change over time, all materials have a tendency to distort through wear and washing. Therefore, Anatech accepts no responsibility for the accurate fit of repeated patterns or the copy of an old brace.
    • When ordering a repeated pattern, please quote the original invoice, purchase order number and or order date along with the patient's name.

Detailed tips can be found on custom order forms and some fitting instructions.
