OTWorld.start-ups: New Ideas for the Modern Orthopaedic Treatment and Care

Young companies will present their new developments and ideas to an international audience of experts in the special exhibition area. A visit to OTWorld.start-ups offers insights into innovative products and the chance to become part of a dynamic network that drives progress in the industry. Newcomers can still register for remaining spaces.

OTWorld takes start-ups further! New ideas and creative innovations come together at the special exhibition area and bring a breath of fresh air to the industry.

A total of 13 start-ups have registered for the OTWorld 2024 so far. Here we present some of tomorrow's idea creators:

The Swedish start-up Tendo AB manufactures and commercializes an advanced microprocessor controlled active hand orthosis, Tendo OneGrip. The groundbreaking robotic glove is aiming to restore hand function and empower individuals to regain their independence. On site at the OTWorld 2024 will be Peter Andersson, Commercial Lead Tendo AB: “Tendo is eagerly looking forward to connecting with clinicians, therapists, ortopedic engineers/technicians, researchers, KOL’s and users as well as potential distributors at OTWorld. We offer live demonstrations and firsthand experience of our state-of-the-art robotic glove, interactive discussions with our team of experts on our technology as well as collaboration opportunities.”

The MedTech startup Simplify Orthotics from Great Britain is dedicated to advancing the field of orthotic products and digital services. Simplify is on a mission to reshape the orthotic industry by introducing the next generation of 3D printed products and digital services. “We have been working hard developing our first product and service over the past year, so we are really excited to introduce ourselves to the O&P community and gain some valuable friends through networking. We see OTWorld as the ideal place to start our journey”, says Jon Parrish, Founder & CEO of Simplify Orthotics.

The Swiss start-up macu4 develops and markets high-performance forearm and hand prostheses that are cost-effective and available remotely. This passive functional orthoprosthesis for example is designed for people with a wrist who have limited or no gripping function or who want to protect their wrist. The customisable cuff design, force transmission to the forearm, ease of use and interchangeable modules allow for different user profiles and activities. Myriam Lingg is enthusiastic about the OTWorld: „OTWorld 2024 offers start-ups an excellent opportunity to publicize their products internationally.”
