AUSTIN, Texas, and ORLANDO, Fla. – Ottobock and TaiLor Made Prosthetics have reached an agreement for Ottobock to be the exclusive distributor of the TaiLor Made prosthetic foot globally, starting in the United States. “The TaiLor Made prosthetic foot is a great complement to Ottobock’s growing portfolio of prosthetic feet,” said Brad Ruhl, president of U.S. HealthCare for Ottobock. The TaiLor Made prosthetic foot is designed with toe and heel elements that move independently along with a shock absorbing mechanical spring pack. It has a unique Control Hub that houses vertical shock springs, allowing for easy in-clinic customization and optimization, according to a press release. TaiLor Made says Ottobock, with its proven track record of introducing “superior microprocessor and endoskeleton components,” is “the perfect company” to introduce the TaiLor Made prosthetic foot to the market.
