– The digital OTWorld special edition, OTWorld.connect, took place from 27 - 29 October 2020. Through the employment of a range of interactive formats, the industry platform for prosthetics, orthotics, orthopaedic footwear technology, compression therapy and individual rehabilitation technology met the great need for an exchange within the industry. The bilingual world congress with 250 speakers from over 20 countries focused on the quality-assured supply of medical aids. The umbrella organisation of German care providers, the German Association of Orthopaedic Technology (BIV-OT), hosted international panels and discussion rounds. Participants also had the chance to explore the world of products from 52 companies from 15 countries in the newly developed Innovation Showrooms. Digital workshops also facilitated practice-oriented interactive exchange. Over 4,000 congress accesses from over 82 countries were used during the live event. Each access typically represented several participants.
