Today, a prosthesis is much more than a simple replacement part for the human body. The simple wood constructions of the past have become innovative high tech systems, which offer amputees the highest level of mobility and security.
Prosthesis allows greater quality of life
As a world market leader in the field of prosthetics, Otto Bock HealthCare puts people in the centre of its focus and orients itself to the natural example in developing new products. The first completely microprocessor controlled leg prosthesis system C-Leg allows the closest possible approach to a natural gait as well as the greatest degree of security and quality of everyday life. The myoelectrically controlled DynamicArm provides new ways for arm amputees to design their life actively and independently. Otto Bock also pays special attention to caring for children. For the degree to which a child can explore its own spaces often defines its development for its entire life.
Thought controlled prosthesis
In the development of innovative prosthesis systems, Otto Bock HealthCare constantly breaks new ground. This results in creative solutions such as the first thought controlled arm prosthesis or the new liner system which increases the wearing comfort of a prosthesis. The goal is to optimally match the various components of a prosthesis system to the wearer’s individual needs and obtain the best possible care with a prosthesis.
