Building the Future Human

Össur describes its mission as the manufacture of non-invasive orthopedic equipment intended to improve mobility and quality of life for people who have injuries or disorders of the joints, bones or related muscles.

That aim has led the firm, based in Reykjavik, Iceland, to this: producing state-of-the-art bionic prosthetic lower limbs, which the wearer can control using his or her mind.
