The AIOT is Australia's national association for orthopaedic/casting personnel.

Who We Are

The AIOT is an association for orthopaedic/casting personnel.

• The AIOT has representatives in every state except for ACT. 
• We are growing steadily in numbers, even though we haven’t advertised our association. 
• There are different levels of membership.
• Our association is interested in improving the skills, knowledge and recognition of orthopaedic/cast technicians.  


The AIOT started back in the mid 1990’s with Ron James as the founding President. Other founding members are Anne McArthy, Glenn Brown, Rod Lukey, Naomi Stanton and John Kinealy. 

The association grew quietly as the foundations were set. A meeting took place in Melbourne which was sponsored by Smith&Nephew, where the key personnel from each state gathered. The plan from that meeting did not eventuate, and AOTA evolved out differing opinions. 

Today the AIOT is stronger than ever, and is gathering more members each month. As technicians realize the importance of the Certificate IV in Cast Technology, so will they realize that the AIOT is behind it. The AIOT will be there for existing and future Orthopaedic casting professionals.

Our Board

The members of our board of directors are thought leaders who have made a significant contribution to our society.
