The MOWA system

Why MOWA?

 

That works better.

Restoring the accustomed mobility and achieving the clinical goals - this is what orthoses should achieve. Conventional models usually do not achieve this. It does not matter whether it is a finished model or a custom orthosis based on a plaster cast. The prefabricated products cannot be adapted to the anatomical conditions of the patient and are usually uncomfortable. How well custom-made orthoses fit, in turn, depends largely on the experience and skill of the prosthetist.

Because fit, hardness and designs cannot be tested and adapted to physical changes, patients often wear only uncomfortable compromise solutions. Many of them end up in the wardrobe after a short time. The success of the therapy and the patient's quality of life suffer as a result. This is particularly unfortunate in the case of custom-made orthoses, as their manufacture costs a lot of money and time. In any case, it is difficult to prove the success of the therapy, as the technical possibilities do not allow for meaningful documentation of the treatment.

We can do better, we said to ourselves. Our goal: an orthosis,
  • that fits exactly,
  • that helps the patient walk more naturally,
  • that people like to wear,
  • that creates quality of life,
  • which can be adapted to physical changes at any time,
  • which is produced with the latest technologies, and
  • whose therapeutic success can be documented and measured.

  • Infinite variety of colours and designs

    Infinite variety of colours and designs

    The colours of the 3D printed parts can be freely selected from a comprehensive colour palette. In addition, the upper cuff and the high foot shell can be varied with different clearance patterns for better ventilation.
  • Modular adaptable

    Modular adaptable

    Thanks to its modular design, the MOWA orthosis can be adapted to the anatomy and needs of each patient.
  • The inner values

    The inner values

    The flexibility of MOWA orthoses is convincing from the inside out. Even dorsal support is effortlessly provided by the sophisticated design of the supporting carbon bar.
  • Universal solutions

    Universal solutions

    The systems of the MOWA orthoses can be selected dorsally as well as ventrally and medially as well as laterally, thus meeting all medical requirements.
  • Designed for a more natural gait

    Designed for a more natural gait

    With the high foot component, the rotation of the foot is prevented and better guided, which helps the patient to walk more naturally and safely.
  • As little as possible - as much as necessary

    As little as possible - as much as necessary

    The less support a foot needs, the smaller the foot component can be chosen. The middle foot  component no longer encloses the foot, but has slightly raised side walls for optimal foot guidance.
  • Modern, fashionable MOWA

    Modern, fashionable MOWA

    The deep foot component is designed so that it also fits into high-quality, conventional shoes. Thus, MOWA orthoses can be combined with any style of clothing in a modern and fashionable way.
  • Uncompromising comfort

    Uncompromising comfort

    The connection between the patient's leg and the orthosis is essential for pleasant and comfortable wearing of the orthosis. The cuff is designed in such a way that parts of it follow the movements of the leg and can therefore reduce friction and shear forces almost completely.
