Ossur's Power Knee wins Popular Science magazine's 2005 Best of What's New Award

Ossur. The return on that investment will be realized in a technology platform we refer to as Bionic Technology by Ossur a full range of products for both the prosthetic and orthopedic markets. The objectives are simple yet lofty: remove the physical limitations caused by a patient's disability; remove the morbidity inherent in some conventional designs; and make the technology available to a wider group of patients."

In order to bring the POWER KNEE to market, Ossur has partnered with Victhom Human Bionics, Inc., and the POWER KNEE's inventor, Stephane Bedard, founder, executive vice-president and COO of Victhom, with the goal of jointly pioneering products that will genuinely enhance the quality of life for people with physical disabilities. Victhom develops technological platforms, and Ossur researches and ensures that those platforms not only meet the medical needs of amputees but also enable them to achieve unprecedented functionality, by implementing its clinical expertise and market know-how. It is expected that the POWER KNEE will be market-ready in 2006.

Starting today through November 10, 2005 and for three consecutive days, Popular Science is taking over Vanderbilt Hall in New York's Grand Central Terminal to showcase many of this year's Best of What's New winning products and technologies. The event will be free and open to the pubic. Vanderbilt Hall will be transformed into a fun and interactive space where consumers will be able to meet a POWER KNEE user, as well as a POWER KNEE specialist who is able to answer all questions regarding this remarkable invention.
