Get involved

At Ottobock, we want to spread our Passion for Paralympics by giving people the chance to experience Paralympic sport, whether it is as a participant or an enthusiastic spectator.

The Paralympics is part of our company DNA and as well as special events and exhibitions, everyday our employees are working to get as many people as possible involved.

The Ottobock range of running knees and blades gives amputees of all ages and levels of fitness the ability to run and participate in a range of sports. Regular Ottobock Running Clinics are held all over the world. In two days, Heinrich Popow supported by a team of expert prosthetists has participants up and running, with the confidence to start regularly enjoying a range of sports with family and friends.

From 2012 to 2014 the Ottobock Passion for Paralympics exhibition visited Great Britain, USA, China and Brazil. Designed to engage visitors of all ages and background the exhibition combined multi-media and interactivity to create enthusiasm for Paralympic sport and showcase the importance of technology used by Paralympic athletes.

Everyone is welcome to share our Passion for Paralympics. By joining us on Facebook you will become part of a worldwide community of Paralympic fans and be the first to hear about special events and activities where you can get involved.


Visitors to the Ottobock London 2012 Passion for Paralympics exhibition were asked to share what they are passionate about. Some got very creative!
