Össur Company Background
Founded in 1971, Össur has wide-ranging expertise in the development, production and sale of non-invasive orthopaedics. After its first listing on the Iceland Stock Exchange in 1999, the Company expanded rapidly through a series of strategic acquisitions. Significant ongoing investment in research and innovation has also been central to its growth. A global leader in the field, Össur is determined to further strengthen its market position. The Company has been listed on the NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen Stock Exchange since 2009.
Headquartered in Iceland and employing a staff of around 4,000 across 30 locations, Össur has extensive operations in the Americas, Europe, and Asia, with numerous distributors in other markets.
Among other accolades, Össur is honoured to be recognised by the World Economic Forum as a "Technology Pioneer". True advocates of ‘Life Without Limitations‘‘, the Company works with individuals, clinicians and diverse communities to support a better quality of life for millions of people around the world.
The Company is named after Össur Kristinsson, an Icelandic prosthetist who developed the breakthrough silicone interface for prosthetic sockets, the Iceross® liner. Building on that pioneering tradition, Össur has added numerous life changing products to its portfolio. Among them are dynamic braces such as the Unloader One®, clinically proven to relieve the pain of knee osteoarthritis, and the unique SYMBIONIC® LEG, the world's first complete bionic leg incorporating Bionic Technology by Össur.
