We are OPED.
OPED treatment gets injured people fit quicker
Replacing the uncomfortable plaster cast with a light vacuum splint - that was the vision of the OPED founders Andreas Hassler and Prof. Dr. Peter Habermeyer. Their vision became reality in 1993, when the VACOped – still the most successful OPED product, even today - came onto the market.
The OPED idea: Supporting the patient’s mobility
However, the OPED spirit of invention was in no way satisfied with just the VACOped. The product range has now 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. Furthermore, as advanced rehabilitation products on their own are not enough to achieve a fast and proper recovery, OPED does not only sell the product, but is also available to help the patient with guidance and advice during the entire recovery period. Treatment concepts developed along with physicians help the patient to get back on his feet quicker. The OPED products are developed and produced in Germany. In production, the company has a progressive philosophy: Almost all products are reusable and recyclable.
