About OPED – German engineered products

Replacing the uncomfortable plaster cast with a light vacuum splint was the vision the OPED founders Andreas Hassler and Prof. Dr. Peter Habmayer. Their vision became reality in 1993 when the OPED VACOped – still the most successful OPED product, even today – came onto the market.

Around 280 staff design, develop, produce and distribute OPED products in more than 20 countries. OPED products are currently used in about 2,000 hospitals, clinics and O&P shops throughout Germany. In 2007 around 100, 000 patients had been treated with VACO®ped after fractures, ligament or tendon injuries on the lower leg and foot, making OPED the market leader in Germany in this category. OPED has subsidiaries in Switzerland, the USA, UK, Australia and China, and distributes products throughout Europe and Japan.
