wishing that they enable amputees to bring their very own fashion
statement to the prosthetic technology Ottobock provides,” says Dr. Falk
Berster, Business Unit Director, Ottobock.
“These designs are the first fruits of a very creative collaboration and
we are just at the beginning of this exciting journey. Amputees can now
look forward to more choice in the form of Special Editions designed to
reflect the Ottobock visual product language,” says Eythor Bender, CEO,
Both companies are continuously and with enthusiasm working hand in hand
on optimizing these 3D printed products. This is already resulting in
new product features including newly designed knee bumpers to better
protect the prosthetic covers from scratches.
“We are proud to introduce another functional element in parallel to the
first Ottobock designs. We are steadily looking for potential
improvements for our covers to make the handling for the amputee and
technicians even easier and to make them even more durable. The bumpers
are robust while at the same time integrating a new design element into
the overall prosthetic cover design,” states Manuel Boza, Chief Creative
Officer of UNYQ.
For the first 12 months the bumpers will be exclusively available with
“UNYQ designed for Ottobock” prosthetic covers.
