Blatchford logo 2017

Blatchford is committed to being a global leader in prosthetics and helping to change thousands of lives for the better through providing safe, effective and exciting prostheses and clinical services. We have a leading portfolio of components called endolite that works effectively across a broad range of therapeutic areas and an industry-leading pipeline of promising new products in areas such as biomimetically designed and microprocessor controlled limbs.

For more than 125 years we have maintained a continuous relationship directly with the people who use artificial limbs. In the UK we supply over 35% of amputees seen by the NHS, with additional numbers in other countries. This interaction directs all of our design and manufacturing activities and ensures that we remain focused on the end user of our products.

Our continuous record of prosthetic service also means that those amputees we are fitting who are now in their 20s, we will see through to their 80s. We have a personal commitment, therefore, to each of these individuals, to ensure that the artificial limbs we supply now will support healthy and opportunity filled lives that we can all celebrate as we work together through the years.

Ossur Logo 2015  

We are excited once again to support this year’s BAPO Conference in Coventry. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to engage with our customers and fellow colleagues in a different environment.

We are launching a number of new innovative products and we invite you to our stand for a demonstration with our clinical specialists and users, whom you’ll see walking the floors of the show with their new prosthetics.

The Össur UK office is based in Stockport and we pride ourselves on the service we offer our customers. Our goal is to offer consistent, high-quality customer service. Through value-added services and educational programs, we build close and long-lasting relationships with our customers.

We look forward to seeing you on the stand.


OETT Logo 2015 

The Orthotic Education and Training Trust was originally set up by the Department of Health and the British Surgical Trades Association, in partnership with the British Institute of Surgical Technologists, to provide a private fund for the training and education of orthotists. The income was substantially derived from a levy on orthotic device sales to the NHS. This levy ceased when the training of orthotists progressed to degree courses funded directly by government within the state higher education system.

Renace Logo 2015  

Renace is at the leading edge of orthotic scanning solutions and we are continuing to develop our systems to encompass a greater range of braces.

Having worked in partnership with Scottish health boards for a number of years we have successfully integrated both Rodin and Paromed systems into the clinical service environment producing electronic adult and paediatric AFO’s, KAFO’s, body jackets, helmets and insoles. Digitisation has improved accuracy, efficiency and most of all patient experience. We are now working in partnership with NHS units in the UK, driving forward best practice and value for money solutions.

The Renace footwear range has been revitalised using enhanced materials and processes to improve quality and fit. PU sole units and 10 last choices per size offer a flexible and effective solution for patients who require stock, modular and bespoke footwear.

Our current focus on developing scanning processes for footwear is proving successful and providing enhanced fit and patient comfort.
