Leading doctors from around the world are convinced

As an outstanding doctor, you offer your patients more than just standard care. The ORTHOSCOOT enables you to increase your range for patients with foot and ankle injuries on a new innovation level while closing a supply gap.

In pre and post-operative medical use, after an accident or a surgery on foot or ankle, the benefits of the ORTHOSCOOT model NH1 are unbeatable. Leading practices and clinics in Germany and other countries in Europe are using the ORTHOSCOOT for professional care in house as well as for post-operative care after release.

"We have been using knee-scooters since 2007 at our clinic. We find them very useful for almost all patients that are not supposed to put weight on their feet after surgery. In fact they make it possible, also to treat more severely disabled patients with balance problems and complicated handicaps like after amputations of arms. I am therefore convinced, that knee-walkers or similar walking-aids are superior to crutches and wheel-chairs for a long time.
With the introduction of ORTHOSCOOT NH1 the knee scooter was taken to a higher level. The function, finish, handling and general appearance is further improved to existing models. An other reason, why we choosed the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 is their cleaning- and maintaining concept they do on each single scooter. I am happy to be able to offer the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 to my patients."

"The ORTHOSCOOT NH1 is the next generation of non-weight bearing protection offering comfort, convenience and the ultimate in protection for the injured limb.

"By using the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 the limitations during the postoperative phase after surgery are getting reduced a lot. Especially younger and active patients are obvious more mobile by using the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 and still constanty follow the partial load of the operated foot. Meanwhile we offer the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 although to older patients. After they get used to it, they although have a plain benefit of being more mobile.“

After a successful foot surgery one major goal is a quick postoperative mobilization and to get the patient back on track of independence as fast as possible. For all foot surgeries which require crutches, the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 is a big help to reach those goals. Keep your radius of activity and reduce the loss of working hours. This will although relieve your relatives and supports a proper convalescence. Our experience shows, even older people quickly get used to the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 without foreign aid. One big benefit is although the less effort of the upper extremities. The ORTHOSCOOT NH1 is an important medical tool for operational success and patient satisfaction.

“A high level of patient satisfaction is just as much part of successful treatment as quickly restoring the patient’s independence after the patient has received therapy or undergone surgery.

Thanks to the ergonomically designed knee support rest they can get back to mastering greater distances early on again. The ready-made transportation container in the NH1’s center is perfect for carrying small or medium-sized objects. Thus the patient’s hands remain free for other activities. By relieving pressure on the shoulders the NH1 presents a major improvement, not least for patients with a shoulder or foot condition. Quickly restoring their mobility helps reduce the amount of time they are unable to work.”

"The Orthoscoot convinces with design and function. It represents a practical alternative to crutches and the bulky wheelchair. It is particularly useful for patients who can not use crutches because of shoulder problems. The Orthoscoot promotes early independence after surgery, thereby contributing significantly to the quality of life during an already stressfull period. Some patients were skeptical before surgery, but once they were restricted after surgery they were convinced by the NH1, after their first attempt."

"The ORTHOSCOOT NH1 is an interesting addition of mobilization for patients after foot- and angle surgery or injuries. Mainly active people gain this benefit of better mobility, compared to the wheelchair. We appreciate the ORTHOSCOOT NH1, because it rises the radius of activity and the independence of the patient and supports to withstand a longer period of recovery. "
