On 17 August, Ottobock opened the doors of its Technical Repair Service Center in the Paralympic Village. Athletes can have their equipment maintained and repaired there before and during competitions. After all, wheelchairs, prostheses, orthoses and other devices are subject to extreme stress. 106 technical experts from 24 countries support the Paralympians with expertise and great enthusiasm. From simply inflating a wheelchair tyre to complex repairs.
