The World Economic Forum announces new class of technology pioneers for 2006: Ossur selected

a critical role in driving the company towards reaching its goals.
  • Status. The company must not currently be a Member of the World Economic Forum. This criterion applies to the parent company thus wholly-owned subsidiaries of large firms are not eligible.
  • Nominees are evaluated by an external review committee comprised of technology experts with respect to the criteria above.

    In 2005, Ossur single-handedly transformed the nature of prosthetics with the launch of Bionic Technology by Ossur, a new technology platform which pushes the boundary of existing functional capabilities. Founded upon an interdiciplinary and precise fusion of electronics, mechanics, and human physiology, this new range of products includes Ossur's new products: the RHEO KNEETM and the POWER KNEETM, and will soon address the orthopedic market, as well. The goals are to 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.

    The uniqueness of the Technology Pioneer network ensures that companies involved in the development of new technologies are engaged in an integrated and interdisciplinary way. The Technology Pioneers community will provide the Foundation and its members with in-depth knowledge of some of the key technology issues facing society.
