An orthosis is used to stabilize, relieve, immobilize, guide or correct limbs or the torso.
A prosthesis is a visual replacement for a limb and performs various functions of the missing part of the body.
In the event of malformation, an orthoprosthesis compensates for the shorter length of the leg and, if necessary, provides corrective support.
Personal everyday aids are used to treat amputations or congenital deformities on upper extremities.

SimBrace® is an innovative process that allows you to verify the corrective function of the orthosis before it is manufactured for the patient. Thanks to modern scanning technology, we can dispense with the usually unpleasant plaster cast, such as that in corset manufacturing.
Even though we also care for adults, child orthopedics is especially important to us. Children with a disability or deformity also want to be active and explore the world. We would like to help them be able to do this to the best of our ability.

The advantages of a printed ankle-foot orthosis compared to a conventional polypropylene orthosis are its low weight, thin-walled, durable surface and aesthetic design.
In cooperation with the Aschau Children’s Clinic, we developed a dynamic abduction orthosis that enables restful sleep. The PHAO (Pohlig Hip Abduction Orthosis) keeps the hips in the necessary medical abduction position, but only restricts the mobility of hip and knee joints as much as is absolutely necessary.
