Ottobock acquires BionX active ankle

Austin, TX-based Ottobock HealthCare in March acquired prosthetic foot and ankle maker BionX Medical Technologies, headquartered in Boston, MA.

BionX Medical Technologies produces an active prosthetic foot and ankle solution, the Empower Ankle, which replaces muscle and tendon function with an actively driven ankle joint and supports the user by supplying additional energy during gait, according to an Ottobock release.
