Our users are at the core of everything we do

Every year there are individuals who lose a limb at different stages of their life due to vascular diseases, diabetes, trauma, or are born without one. 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 people focus on new goals rather than limitations by offering comprehensive solutions that are designed with the needs of the user top of mind.

By listening 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.
