Company unveils new Össur Formfit® Pro line of supports and Pro-Flex® LP Align prosthetic foot
Össur, a global leader in non-invasive orthopaedics, today announced the introduction of several new products at OTWorld, a leading prosthetics and orthotics conference and tradeshow.
The company unveiled the Össur Formfit Pro line of 3D knitted supports, designed specifically for athletes of all abilities. Össur also announced the new Pro-Flex LP Align prosthetic foot, featuring heel height adjustability that enables users to maintain proper alignment across a range of everyday footwear.
Össur Formfit Pro
For more than three decades, Össur has driven innovation in bracing solutions for osteoarthritis. Maintaining that tradition, the first product to be introduced in the new Össur Formfit Pro range, is the Össur Formfit Pro Knee OA. This unique support is designed to unload the knee compartment and enhance proprioception for early or mild osteoarthritis and other knee conditions, helping people to maintain an active lifestyle.
The introduction of additional products for knee, ankle, back, elbow and wrist will follow Össur Formfit Pro Knee OA.
Össur Pro-Flex LP Align
Össur Pro-Flex LP Align is the latest addition to the established Pro-Flex family of products. Historically, lower limb amputees have had to sacrifice the functionality of their prosthesis for heel height. This unique new foot features tool-free, user-controlled heel height adjustability, enabling users to maintain optimal alignment across a broad range of everyday footwear. From bare feet to sneakers to heels, Pro-Flex LP Align enables users to change footwear, as desired, throughout the day, without compromising their alignment or body posture.

Team Iceland promotion
For the first time in its history, Iceland will participate in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, following an incredible performance to reach the quarter finals of the European Championship in 2016. With just 350,000 inhabitants, Iceland is the smallest nation ever to qualify for this prestigious competition. To celebrate this historic achievement, Össur has joined forces with Iceland’s national football team to promote the new Össur Formfit Pro range.
“We are very excited to introduce Össur Formfit Pro and Össur Pro-Flex LP Align to professionals attending OTWorld” said Jón Sigurdsson, Össur President & CEO. “In addition, our partnership with the Iceland football team to promote Össur Formfit Pro reflects our expansion into the consumer sports and fitness sector with this new product range – 2018 is going to be a big year for Össur and the Iceland football team.”
