Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Otto Bock, Incorporated, to offer mobility and seating solutions for the disabled community to a larger consumer market. Otto Bock, a young German prosthetist, founded his company in 1919 in Berlin, Germany. When more than four million German veterans came home wounded from World War I, Bock quickly realized that he and other German clinicians would not be able to keep up with the demand, and maintain quality, by making individually crafted prostheses for all of these soldiers who were missing limbs. He came up with the idea of standardizing components required for prostheses and orthoses and redefined the orthopedics industry by starting a company based on his pioneering principle of 'mass production combined with the highest quality'. Today, the Otto Bock Company Group, headquartered in Duderstadt, Germany, is an international company, serving more than 140 countries, and with 36 branches, they are the world's largest manufacturer of orthotics, prosthetics and rehabilitation products.
The Otto Bock HealthCare division opened its doors in the USA in 1958, and in Canada in 1978, and continued their tradition of offering products and services that help people increase and retain their physical independence. Their product lines include the world famous C-Leg® prosthetic, the Necky Cervical 50C20 orthosis, post-surgical CPM, TENS, Cryo and NMES therapies, adult and pediatric mobility and seating solutions, and aids for daily living. Otto Bock uses input from the people who use their products and combines that input with their deep clinical knowledge and R&D capabilities to create the best solutions possible to restore and maintain mobility for people all over the world. Their pediatric portfolio includes strollers, standers, walkers, toilet and bath equipment, seating and power mobility solutions, all inspired by the children and their families who refuse to be defined by disabilities, and that reflect the family's need for ease of use and flexibility, along with the child's need to realize their full potential in every environment; home, school and play.
“We are proud to offer these high quality mobility and seating solutions from Otto Bock to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Their expertise with designing and manufacturing products for the rehabilitation industry is unparalleled, and we are confident that our customers will find these products very helpful in reaching their own physical independence goals.”
