Ottobock starts orthotic business unit

Austin, TX-based Ottobock in August announced the creation of a business unit focused on off-the-shelf orthoses, fbracing, and supports. The Activity & Sports Medicine (ASM) unit combines products from Ottobock acquisitions Ortho Rehab, Bio Cybernetics International, and Cybertech and its global portfolio of orthotic solutions.

“Ottobock has developed and marketed orthotic products for decades,” said Matt Waidelich, president and CEO of Ottobock’s ASM business unit. “Our new name reflects the clinicians we work with, helping to improve outcomes for patients with acute and chronic conditions like osteoarthritis of the knee and spinal stenosis.”
