The company

All around the world, the Ottobock name stands for high-quality and technologically outstanding products and services. The goal of helping people to restore their mobility – or retain what mobility they have – stands behind each and every Ottobock product. The conviction that quality of life is closely associated with a maximum of individual freedom and independence is a key concept that has been a major influence throughout the company’s nearly 100-year history.
