The Australian Orthotic Prosthetic Association Ltd. (AOPA) is the peak professional body representing orthotist/prosthetists in Australia.
AOPA self regulates the profession and sets standards and codes which are upheld by the membership.
Currently AOPA has over 400 members and represents more than 80% of all practicing orthotist/prosthetists in Australia.
On December 6th 2015 AOPA will turn 40. It is a wonderful milestone that gives us an opportunity to reflect on the pathway the Association has taken to reach this point today. Initially founded as the Australian Orthotic Association in 1975, the membership voted just 3 years later to change the Associations’ name to the Australian Orthotic Prosthetic Association to reflect the dual stream nature of the profession and the service accessed by consumers.
