Ottobock brings Bionx ankle to Europe

Duderstadt, Germany-based Ottobock reported in December that it has signed an exclusive deal with Bionx to distribute the Bedford, MA-based company’s motor-driven ankle in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Scandinavia.

The Biom Prosthetic Ankle expands Ottobock’s product portfolio of modern prosthetic feet and offers additional degrees of ankle movement to amputees, said Helmut Pfuhl, head of Ottobock’s Prosthetics Business Unit.

Austin, TX-based Ottobock and Dallas, TX-based Scott Sabolich Prosthetics & Research (SSPR) in November 2015 signed a collaboration agreement with a goal of advancing prosthetic patient outcomes. The nonequity relationship includes sharing expertise on education, quality standards, and reimbursement strategies.
