In 1971, prosthetist and orthotist Össur Kristinsson founded Össur and went on to patent a silicone interface for prosthetic sockets that he called Iceross. Fifty years later, we're proud to continue his mission to pioneer mobility solutions based in science and innovation. #LifeWithoutLimitations

“Life Without Limitations means I can do exactly what I want to do.”

“My influence is to inspire others and to make them believe that if I can do it, they can do it too.”

Marissa P.
“Life Without Limitation means I can be ‘the coolest kid in school’”

“I refuse to EVER let anyone tell me I can’t do something.”

“I try to show everybody that disability is not a handicap. You can still do anything you want in life.”

“I really want to show people that anything is possible.”

“I run because I want to use the body that I was given, whatever its imperfections.”


We have been transforming the meaning of “limitations” since 1971.  Last year, we began sharing stories of the dreamers whose relentless passion inspires us to break boundaries and live boldly.

We’re proud to continue celebrating the many women, men and children who live a life without limitations.  We’re inspired by their energy and resilience.  We’re inspired by their positive and hopeful spirit.  And we’re inspired by how they’ve transformed their lives. 

Join us in congratulating Bertolt, Marissa, Morgan, Femita, Markus, Paola and Sarah on living a life without limitations.
