The NCOPI lab – formally known as Precision Orthotic and Prosthetic; casually referred to as Central Fab – was founded in 2011 in Raleigh, NC. The 6800 square-foot space acts as the fabrication facility for all orthotic and prosthetic solutions required by any of the five NCOPI offices. It is centrally located to the hospitals in Raleigh and Wake Forest, just off of Capital Boulevard.
The lab was built to service a need within NCOPI and the greater O&P community. Our practitioners felt confined by the existing fabrication facility model, which demanded that devices be designed in-office but sent off-site (sometimes out of state) for fabrication. NCOPI leadership decided to bypass the inherently inefficient process of sending devices to external labs, and developed plans for Central Fab.
Because the lab is at our disposal 24/7, we are able to provide unparalleled service to patients.
