Orthocare Innovations wins tech honor

R&D Magazine highlighted its picks for the year’s best technology in July, naming Oklahoma City-based Orthocare Innovations’ microprocessor foot-ankle system to its list of the 100 most technologically significant products introduced in the last year.

Other winners of this year’s R&D 100 Awards include the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Toyota.

Orthocare’s Magellan system uses microprocessor computer control combined with microhydraulic technology to mimic key functional features of the human ankle.

The system also supports wireless connectivity, allowing patients and healthcare providers to adjust the device using iPhone and iPad apps or Bluetooth technology.
