Fillauer Companies, Inc. has grown to be a globally renowned leader in the development, manufacturing, distribution and application of orthotic and prosthetic products. Fillauer Companies, Inc., is comprised of upper limb subsidiaries, Hosmer and Motion Control.
The Hosmer Dorrance Corporation began in 1912 when D.W. Dorrance, an amputee, invented the first split hook out of dissatisfaction with the terminal devices available at the time. Thanks to his inventive nature, he continued to solve problems he and other amputees faced, establishing Hosmer as a well-respected leader in the orthotics and prosthetics industry. Beginning with simple improvements and electrical devices, Hosmer led the industry in myoelectric components and technology. In 1996, Hosmer joined the Fillauer Companies, Inc. in a concerted effort to meet the needs of their growing customer base with as many products and options as possible. Hosmer’s product line includes upper and lower extremity orthotic and prosthetic products with a specialty in hands and knees.
In 1974, a group of faculty members and researchers at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City joined forces to commercialize the medical technology developed at the University’s Center for Engineering Design. The result was the world’s most advanced prosthetic arm, the Utah Artificial Arm, and the creation of Motion Control. The Utah Arm was upgraded in 1997 to create the U2, and further upgraded in 2004 to create the U3. Microprocessors control the elbow and hand allowing the wearer to control them simultaneously. One of many technically advanced products created by Motion Control, the U3 sets the standard for all their prosthetics: a combination of superior performance, technology, and cosmetic appearance. Motion Control, Inc. is the leading U.S. manufacturer of myoelectric and externally powered prosthetic arm systems. Motion Control joined the Fillauer Companies, Inc. in 1997. They offer world-class prosthetic technology and a team of professionals working daily to make their technology even better.
IBT’s mission is to improve the lives of amputees through the development of meaningful devices. Today, IBT is a tightly focused group of engineers, students, and researchers working together to improve the lives of upper limb amputees through the development of devices that matter. Working closely with patients and clinicians, we are building technology that will make prostheses more dependable, functional, and comfortable. We’re proud to be innovating technology that will help people work, play, and live their lives.
Naked Prosthetics designs and manufactures high-quality prosthetic devices specifically for finger loss. Our mission is to assist people with digit amputation(s) and positively impact their lives with fully articulating high-quality custom finger prostheses. Our product aims to restore the ability to perform most tasks, supporting job retention and an active lifestyle. Our customers have lost fingers to power tools, equipment malfunctions, injury in the line of military service, random accidents, and infections; in some cases, multiple digits have been lost. Historically, finger prosthetics have been considered a second tier of prosthetics due to the lack of meaningful functionality. NP now provides a viable functional prosthesis, versus a passive cosmetic solution. Our design mimics finger motion and utilizes the remainder of an amputee’s digit to power the device.
Pioneers of advanced technology, our mission is to improve people’s mobility. As a global leader in non-invasive orthopaedics, we have nurtured an innovative mind-set, continuously pushing the boundaries to create the best products and services in the fields of Prosthetic, Osteoarthritis and Injury Solutions. True advocates of “Life Without Limitations”, we work with individuals, clinicians and diverse communities around the world to support a better quality of life for millions of people.
Since its founding in Berlin in 1919, Ottobock has pursued a vision: to improve the mobility of people with disabilities through innovative products. In doing so, the company equates quality with “Quality for life”: the quality of life enjoyed by the people who use Ottobock products every day. People at the center, their individuality and requirements and needs with respect to functionality, quality as well as design form the basis for the company’s enduring capability of innovation.
All around the world, the Ottobock name stands for high-quality and technologically outstanding products and services. The goal of helping to restore mobility for people—or protect what mobility they have—stands behind each and every Ottobock product. The conviction that quality of life is closely associated with a maximum of individual freedom and independence is a key concept that has been a major influence throughout the company’s 90-year history.
Partial Hand Solutions is an innovative company dedicated to advancing technology for partial hand amputees. Since the companies inception in 2007, Partial Hand Solutions has provided functional solutions for many active soldiers and individuals with partial hand and partial finger amputations. Partial Hand Solutions prosthetic fingers are the first of its kind that can offer a functional option for those individuals. The M-Fingers, Partial M-Fingers and M-Thumb have allowed these individuals to maximize their potential and enhance their overall functional outcome. The new TITAN series prosthetic fingers are now available and designed to meet the demands of the heavy duty user and highly active individuals.
Durable full finger prostheses for partial hand amputees. Website currently states it is under development.
TASKA™ was engineered to do one thing – to be more useful than any other myoelectric hand available. It frees you to do more. More of the big little things like peeling a potato, clicking a computer mouse, doing the laundry, washing the car, mowing the lawns or firmly holding a knife to cut a thick juicy steak. Daily tasks now come easily without the need to be forever changing grips or having to wear a glove. We hope you will be as excited as we are about this advanced, robust and waterproof prosthetic hand. Together with your Clinician and TASKA™ team, you will be fully supported in making the most of the practical tasks it now makes possible for the first time.
Texas Assistive Devices originally developed the Hayden Preston System (HPS). It was the only interchangeable prosthetic tool system in the world at the time that featured a terminal device with a pitch adjustment of 60° including 360° rotation. The universal push-button quick insert-release terminal device was capable of utilizing a wide selection of custom designed and crafted interchangeable tools and implements. Because of the HPS’s unique design, it allowed the user to perform jobs, chores and duties that he or she would be unable to do otherwise without an assistant. The HPS System offers N-Abler products including wrist adapters, hands free tool changing station and the body powered five function wrist, which allows for wrist flexion, extension, pronation, and supination. Texas Assistive Device’s mission is to become the world’s leading provider of devices designed to assist persons with upper extremity amputation and hand dysfunction.
TRS Inc. was formed in 1979, by upper limb amputee Bob Radocy, who was frustrated by the limited performance of commercially available prosthetics devices. He lost his left hand about four inches below the elbow in an auto accident in 1971. Bob experimented with all types of prosthetic devices. In 1977, while in graduate school, he applied his engineering and biological sciences education and design experience to create a high performance, prehensor which allowed him to be competitive with two handed peers in any activity he chose. Thus in 1980, the GRIP prehensile hand was first manufactured.
Since then, TRS has grown to become the leading innovator of body-powered prosthetic devices in the world. TRS remains specialized. We design and build only high quality technology for persons missing a hand(s). Please use TRS as your personal information resource in upper limb prosthetic technology. We are here to help you! TRS Products are available through all certified prosthetic and orthotic facilities in the USA and via specific prosthetic resources worldwide. Please contact TRS directly if you would like an informative brochure or more specific information and please help us by letting us know that you heard about us on the WEB, via the O&P Online Community. Thank you!
