Orthoses and prostheses

Orthoses and prostheses are an important area of medical care. They provide security, contribute to an independent lifestyle and increase well-being.

Orthoses act externally directly on the body. They are used to stabilize, relieve, immobilize, mobilize or correct incorrect posture of limbs or the trunk. They can also replace partially failed functions or prevent deformation.

Prostheses completely or partially imitate missing or damaged body parts such as limbs, ears and nose as well as organs or organ parts. They create a functional balance and restore the optical appearance.
