Through the development of innovative aids such as the first thought controlled arm prosthesis and new methods such as laser technology, illnesses can be recognised earlier and provided with better treatment today. Modern medical technology allows affected persons to receive optimal rehabilitation as well as more mobility and quality of life.
Research and development in medical technology
The main focus of medical technology is in the field of research and development. As a world market leader in the field of prosthetics, Otto Bock always orients itself closely to the example of nature. The analysis of natural movement processes leads to the development of modern medical-technological aids which protect or restore personal mobility. Innovations such as the world’s first completely microprocessor controlled leg prosthesis system C-Leg show that high-tech solutions produce an enormous increase in quality of life.
Medical technology: Challenges of the future
Despite the advances made in recent years, medical technology faces great challenges in the future as well. For the worldwide rising life expectancies also mean higher numbers of people who suffer from the consequences of stroke, osteoporosis, rheumatism, diabetes or other illnesses and depend on innovative medical technology solutions.
