Life Without Limitations®

We strive to create a Life Without Limitations for the many people who use our products and solutions. They are at the core of everything we do, and we specialize in providing qualitative and comprehensive solutions to a wide range of individual needs.

Our End-Users

We help individuals to advance their everyday life and pursue their goals. Prosthetics are used by people who were born with limb loss or limb difference, or who have had limbs amputated for a variety of reasons. Vascular diseases including diabetes as well as cancer, trauma, and congenital defects are some of the more common reasons. The users of our prosthetic products and solutions range from children to the elderly, and from low to high active people and successful athletes. Bracing & Supports are used by individuals who develop knee pain, are diagnosed with osteoarthritis in their joints, incur fractures to their ligaments or injure themselves causing movement impairment.

Significant investment in research and development has resulted in over 2,000 patents, award-winning designs, successful clinical outcomes, and consistently strong market positions. Every year, we invest around 5% of sales in research and development to progress and enhance our product portfolio for the benefit of our end-users. Össur is a pioneer of advanced technology with top tier brand recognition based on quality and high reliability, providing scientifically proven solutions that deliver effective clinical outcomes. We emphasize listening to and learning from our end-users to develop successful products and solutions.
