Our users are at the core of everything we do
Individuals can be living with limb loss or limb difference for a variety of reasons. Vascular disease, diabetes, trauma and congenital defects are some of the more common reasons. There are also individuals who develop knee pain, are diagnosed with osteoarthritis in their joints, incur fractures to their ligaments or injure themselves resulting in movement impairment. For years Össur has helped these individuals focus on new goals rather than limitations by offering comprehensive solutions that are designed with the needs of the user top of mind.
World class innovation capabilities
Össur is a pioneer of advanced technology where our brand recognition is based on innovative and scientifically proven solutions that deliver effective clinical outcomes. By listening to and understanding people’s needs and pushing the boundaries of technology, we continue to create some of the best products and services available in the fields of prosthetics and bracing & supports. Every year Össur invests the equivalent of 5% of sales in R&D efforts to work on new innovative products for the benefit of our users. In 2020 we introduced more than 20 new products to the market.
Össur operates within two market segments of the orthopaedic market: bracing & supports and prosthetics. Prosthetic products include artificial limbs and related products for amputees. Bracing & supports products are primarily used to support joints and other body parts, both for preventive and therapeutic purposes.
