Healthia Limited is a publicly listed organization aiming to become one of Australia’s major allied health companies which offers podiatry, physiotherapy and associated services. They are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange with the sale of a $26.8 million Initial Public Offer (IPO). Healthia is the holding business which owns and manages over 70 MyFootDr podiatry centers all around Australia. They also operate the foot orthotics laboratory, iOrthotics and have a 50 per cent share of DBS Medical that sells medical products.
