OPED develops, manufactures and sells trend-setting product concepts in the field of core competence – modern Orthosis.
Replacing the uncomfortable plaster cast with a light, functional vacuum splint was the vision of the OPED founders. Their vision became reality in 1993, when the VACOped – still the most successful OPED product, even today – came onto the market. However, the OPED spirit of invention was in no way satisfied with just the VACOped, which is the state-of-the-art treatment nowadays. The product range has been expanded to encompass an entire family of vacuum orthoses. Whether it is torn ligaments, Achilles tendon rupture or a fractured wrist: OPED products offer optimum care with the highest degree of mobility and hygiene.
