Ossur takes another giant step in prosthetic technology

August 3, 2006 (ALISO VIEJO, CA) Ossur (ICEX: OSSR) the Iceland-based developer and supplier of orthopedic devices has launched more scientifically advanced prosthetic innovations than any other company in the field. Now it has seized upon one of the 21st century's hottest areas of technology bionics to improve the quality of life for amputees. Prosthetists, the press, and users alike have been dazzled by its knees, which employ motorized power and artificial intelligence, making them the first truly ground-breaking innovations in prosthetics since the late '90s. Bionic Technology by Ossur is continuing to expand not just by utilizing and merging current technologies, but by advancing them and conceiving entirely new ones.

The latest addition slated for launch later this year is the PROPRIO FOOT TM, the world's first motor-powered and intelligent foot that thinks for itself, operating as closely as you can get today to natural, human functioning. For an amputee, this means a more balanced, symmetric and confident gait even when climbing stairs or hills, the unprecedented ability to stand up or sit down naturally from a chair, and less consequential strain on the rest of the body. It joins two other prosthetics which utilize Ossur's Bionic Technology platform. One is the RHEO KNEE TM, the award-winning system so smart it automatically adapts to the wearer's walking style and environment, learning continuously until it reaches optimal efficiency. The other is the POWER KNEE TM, the world's first motor-powered knee. This advanced bionic prosthesis replaces true muscle activity, thus making it possible for the first time ever - for an amputee to go up stairs and inclines foot-over-foot. In every possible way, Bionic Technology by Ossur represents a quantum leap forward when it comes to improving the quality of life for amputees. It's a testament to the value of the RHEO KNEE and the POWER KNEE that the U.S. Department of Defense is fitting them o
