Orthoses and supports from Ottobock

Ottobock develops and fabricates high-quality orthoses and supports that can help you with specific complaints. On the one hand, these include orthoses to promote healing after injuries to ligaments, joints and bones. For users with permanent impairments, they can maintain functions and prevent or reduce pain. Generally speaking, the objective is for the products to effectively support and accompany therapy as directed by your doctor. Paralysis orthoses – such as knee-ankle-foot orthoses or ankle-foot orthoses – are custom-made by an orthotics and prosthetics professional (O&P professional) and constitute permanent fittings for people affected by paralysis or paresis of one or both legs. They can also help people regain maximum freedom of movement, despite their limitations.

Ottobock works closely with prestigious O&P professionals, physicians and therapists to develop new products. Scientific studies document the effectiveness of these products. Their suitability for everyday use is also an important factor: skin-friendly materials, pleasant wearer comfort and practical handling make the orthoses easier for you to use.

Mobility for people is at the very heart of our company’s nearly 100-year history. The goal of helping to restore people’s mobility – or protect what mobility they have – stands behind each and every Ottobock product.
