Our holistic approach to product design centres around the whole person and not just their mobility limitation. This ensures we develop solutions that not only help people to get the most out of every day, but to do so in a way that cares for their long-term health and wellbeing.
We are committed to delivering value, quality and outstanding customer experience to every customer.
Leaders in Innovation
Founded in London in 1890, we have a long history of firsts and continue to be widely recognised for our commitment to innovation. We are proud to have created the very first commercially available hydraulic ankle, the first microprocessor controlled hydraulic ankle and the world’s first fully integrated limb system.
Our pioneering technology has been the recipient of many prestigious awards including the Queen’s Award, the MacRobert Award, the German Design Award and the Medical Design Excellence Award in the USA.
We continue to pursue innovation, challenging possibilities and perceptions to create solutions that change lives.
We develop products through an extensive collaboration between our research and development team, clinical experts, patient insight groups and customers to find solutions that deliver results.
We collaborate with universities and independent researchers to prove the medical benefits of our technology. This work helps provide evidence to inform best practice in the wider rehabilitation community and give healthcare providers the confidence to prescribe advanced technology to patients.
