Innovation with emphasis on clinical outcomes
Always at the forefront of innovation, delivering a wide range of products and services, Össur’s reputation has been built on scientifically-proven designs with the emphasis on clinical outcomes.
Core areas of expertise
Topping the list of Össur’s core areas of expertise are silicone and carbon composites. This specialist materials know-how also extends to textiles, particularly those used in compression therapy and in the last decade, Össur’s accumulated skills and knowledge have produced cutting edge bionic technology, arguably the most significant advance to date in the international orthopaedic arena.
A long-standing and dynamic relationship with medical professionals and product users, plus sustained investment in research and new technology, continues to produce some of the most effective, non-invasive mobility solutions on the market today.
The Consultants’ Choice
For many consultant knee surgeons the Össur knee braces are their first choice, with the Unloader One offering many of the benefits of knee surgery without the invasive technique and may be used by consultants to find out if a patient will be responsive to surgical procedures such as High Tibial Osteotomy.
Prevention and cure
Injured knee ligaments will never repair to their pre-injury status, so prevention is better than cure.
The Össur CTi® Custom Ligament Braces are designed to support the injured knee. Many extreme sports place the knee at high risk of injury and the CTi® custom knee brace has become the first choice for stability and protection.
With a unique range of “add on” devices, these braces can be customised to suit many sports.
The Sports & Performing Arts Clinic in Cumbria provide an assessment and fitting service for the Össur Unloader One® and CTi® Custom Ligament Braces.
These products require professional fitting from a clinical specialist.
