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.

    I purchased this product after I sustained a mid foot fracture as I needed a light, support to focus specifically on the foot and ankle after trying several other mid calf & knee length moon boot options. I found it both excellent for supporting my injury & very light weight so it was much easier for me to walk around. The option of both an inflatable & soft cloth inners was also nice to take me through the stages of recovery from the fracture. I used the boot to travel overseas to Hawaii & found it an excellent boot in hot weather & would highly recommend this product specifically for any foot fractures as it focuses support specifically on the foot area & is much less cumbersome than other mid calf or knee length moon boots.
