Scandinavian entrepreneur launches CSUS to focus on American business

Scandinavian orthopedic bracing entrepreneur Peter Allard has launched a new company, CSUS, to focus on business opportunities in the Americas.

Allard acquired Camp Scandinavia in 2006 from his father Bertil and has maintained it as a family-owned company while expanding globally. For the launch of CSUS, Allard brought in a research and development team with more than 50 years of experience in the orthopedic industry to be the foundation for development of innovative, functional, and fashion-forward bracing solutions.

Lower extremity product lines include Vission, M2, and Forge. Vission, the company’s signature line, features neoprene knee wraps and universal immobilizers, clamshell walkers, and the NaviGait ankle foot orthosis. The M2 line offers a range of ankle braces (lace-up, wrap, and stirrup), two night splint designs and an ACL brace. The Forge line includes hinged post-operative knee bracing devices in two different wrap styles as well as hinged and fixed walkers in a variety of heights.

The new company, based in Rockaway, NJ, made its trade show debut in February at the Combined Sections Meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association in New Orleans. Upcoming appearances include the annual meetings of the American Association of Orthopaedic Executives later this month and the American College of Sports Medicine in early June.
