OPAI 2020 Conference: Össur India ready to showcase the latest in award-winning prosthetic and orthotic technologies for O&P’s and their patients

OPAI 2020

 

Össur India is pleased to announce that we will be participating at the 25th National Conference of Orthotics and Prosthetics Association of India (OPAI). The conference will take place from the 7th to the 9th of February 2020 at KIIT University, Bhubaneswar, with a pre-conference Workshop on 6th of February 2020. (Please find the detailed programme below.)

The theme of Össur India’s exhibition this year is Our Technology, Your Patients – a theme which aligns with Össur's expertise in product innovation and successful clinical outcomes and we want to encourage all O&P practitioners and industry leaders to visit Össur’s exhibition stand. Events such as these are essential, as it provides opportunities for practitioners to gain valuable new insights - not only through the formal academic programme - but also from colleagues simply getting together and sharing information. It is pleasing to know these new insights may ultimately have a positive impact on the lives of many patients.

Prosthetic Solutions for all

Össur continuously invests in developing complete prosthetic solutions for both lower and upper limb amputees of all activity levels.

Leading the way is the Össur Pro-Flex® LP Align – the latest addition to the already established Pro-Flex family of products. All Pro-Flex feet feature a unique and proprietary 3-blade design with a foot blade that incorporates a full effective toe lever and a more anatomical split toe.

Historically, lower limb amputees have had to sacrifice the functionality of their prosthesis for heel height. This unique new foot features tool-free, user-controlled heel height adjustability, enabling users to maintain optimal alignment across a broad range of everyday footwear. From bare feet to sneakers to heels, Pro-Flex® LP Align enables users to change footwear, as desired, throughout the day, without compromising their alignment or body posture.

Highlights from Össur‘s Bionic range of products will include the award-winning and well-received RHEO KNEE® and RHEO KNEE® XC, two highly-responsive microprocessor knees designed to ensure balance and stability for a wide range of circumstances. Also, the i-Limb® Quantum multi-articulating myolectric hand, and the new i-Limb Wrist, the first-ever wrist rotator to perform simultaneous rotation upon grip selection.

Leading in pain relief for OA patients

The Unloader® brand name has become a synonym for osteoarthritis braces. With more than 15 clinical studies demonstrating their efficacy, Unloader OA knee braces have been the industry standard for close to four decades. Össur is proud to introduce the latest addition to the Unloader family, the Unloader One® X.

Like our popular Unloader One® brace, Unloader One® X features the Össur 3-Point Leverage System. This patented system is clinically proven to improve mobility by providing pain relief from unicompartmental knee OA or degenerative meniscal tears. Equally important, the Unloader One® X incorporates a host of new features designed to improve patient comfort and compliance.
