AffMed (Pty) Ltd , formerly known as Affordable Medical (Pty) Ltd was established in 1998 as a sub distributor for innovative medical devices for the Northern Gauteng region in South Africa.


In 2003, the company began the marketing and distribution for Acumed in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana.

Later in 2010, OsteoMed was added to the portfolio for solutions for Upper and Lower Extremity.


We are a dedicated sales team of professional individuals delivering world class service to orthopaedics surgeons countrywide.


In October 2020, Colson Medical LLC - part of Marmon Holdings Inc. , a Berkshire Hathaway company announced the merger of Acumed and OsteoMed. 


Acumed | OsteoMed serves highly skilled specialised surgeons that demand comprehensive, high quality medical devices for patients with simple to complex injuries for optimal restoration of function.




What started as a small family business in 1988 has since evolved into a global market leader, providing orthopaedic and medical solutions that improve patient care around the world.


For more than two decades, OsteoMed has remained sharply focused on meeting the needs of surgeons and their patients by rethinking clinical possibilities with a focus on procedural efficiency, efficacy and uncompromised quality.

Innovation often follows the straightest path. In bone grafting, attention to basic fundamentals has always been the key to the best and most predictable clinical outcomes. Historically, bone itself is the best substrate for new bone formation.
