Together with the Gunser company which blu took over in 2022, we can now offer the full product spectrum and comprehensive consultations on everything from small to larger medial aids to improve your fitness, or more comprehensive solutions to support you through an ongoing therapy or rehabilitation process. We have made it our mission to provide the best quality of orthopaedic technology products to meet your needs. Sometimes the situation you are in is quite difficult, but often the solution is very simple. Our goal is to combine all our skills and know-how on the best products available in a targeted manner to relieve you of as much of the burden as possible. We will help you move easier through life.
Orthopedic technology is a specialist area that encompasses a huge range of possibilities such as bandages, orthoses or orthopaedic shoe insoles.
Are you looking for a bandage that really works? One that’s as thin and light as possible but fully functioning to improve your situation and capabilities?
For some, the goal is to achieve top athletic performance, for others, it’s simply to be able to climb stairs pain-free again. Whatever your goal may be, we will fit you with the most suitable medical aid. In general, the main function of the bandages we supply lies in their compression effect, which is achieved through a combination of design features. If you still have doubts about the benefits of bandages and how they can help you, please call in to one of our stores and we will gladly advise you without any obligation.
Some examples of bandages available in our branches:
- ankle bandages
- knee bandages
- back bandages
- hip bandages
- shoulder bandages
- elbow bandages
- wrist wraps
- waist bands
Orthopaedic shoe technology
In the area of orthopaedic shoe technology, we offer you individual professional solutions for custom-made orthopaedic shoes, shoe adjustments and diabetic insoles. Our orthopaedic shoe specialists are qualified to Masters level and are ready, together with their team, to advise and support you in this hugely significant area.
Orthopaedic shoe technology provides a further key option to customise the right therapy for you. Shoe adjustments carried out are invisible for the most part but are highly effective, especially when combined with the use of insoles. Custom made orthopaedic shoes compensate for serious mobility restrictions. We ensure that the complex requirements of patients with diabetic foot syndrome are met by applying the most modern pressure measurement systems and materials.
Shoe adjustments are made on your own shoes and are very effective when worn with customised insoles. These changes to your shoes are usually not noticeable, perhaps only to professionals with a trained eye. Surprise yourself!
Made to measure
Often special requirements and sizes cannot be met by the ready-made aids available. If the ready-made aids do not achieve the required fit and function for you, we specialise in custom-making numerous products according to your specific requirements.
The custom manufacture of insoles has proven so successful that it is has evolved as standard in its own right. In the same way, products in other areas specially designed for you are indispensable and necessary. In some cases, a special fit or therapy may require a more expensive custom-made solution to achieve the therapy goals. In these cases, the statutory health insurance companies usually cover the costs incurred. Over the years, we have continuously invested in our workshop equipment so that we are in the fortunate position of being able to produce a wide range of custom-made orthoses for you. Our specialist staff are happy to provide you with detailed information about all possibilities and special criteria for custom-made fittings.
Corsets in the orthopaedic technical sense are made-to-measure back solutions that are developed in various ways by our specialists according to the patients clinical history. The unique selling point is that these can be designed to fit perfectly so that they are highly functional and effective, even for the most unique build. A sub-form is the waist belt, the main function of which is to support the whole body.
Health care products
In our branches we offer you a comprehensive range of small medical aids to support your therapy. Even without an existing therapy, you will find products in our branches that will help you strengthen your health and even avoid an extensive treatment.

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is an excellent and well-established therapy for building up muscle after injuries or surgical procedures. It is usually prescribed in addition to classic physiotherapy methods and thus strengthens muscle building. A TENS device is used to reduce chronic pain conditions through stimulation currents. Different programs and intensities, which can be set individually, prevent a build-up of a tolerance effect and ensure effective pain reduction.
There can be many different reasons for applying pressure to an area of the body in a focused and safe way. Long flights and high-performance sports tend to be the more pleasant of occasions. Often, typical uses for compression are for people who suffer from venous problems, varicose veins, swelling, lymphatic or lipoedema. Our professional team can offer each of these patients the best possible care thanks to our selection of high-quality compression stockings, which can be custom-made if required.
We have at least one certified specialist for flat knit supplies in each of our branches who is looking forward to going through your options with you.
Individual flat-knit compression stockings are primarily used for the effective treatment of lymph or lipoedema. The unique manufacturing process opens up possibilities that go far beyond the spectrum of normal circular knitted products.
Put simply, these stockings are less stretchy, so they offer greater resistance to congestion and the associated swelling. In addition, due to the special knitting technique, many individual design criteria can be selected. The high complexity of the supply requires careful planning and action by highly trained specialists. We offer you this know-how and we look forward to sharing it with you.

After the loss of a limb, it is possible to compensate for this loss with the most modern prostheses. Depending on the degree of mobility and requirements, we will develop the most suitable care concept together with the treating doctor, therapist and the person concerned.
The prosthesis is based on a modular design to mimic the mobility and functionality of the leg. The construction is flexible so that the individual components, such as the prosthetic foot, can be perfectly matched to the wearer. The liner is used to connect the residual limb to the socket of the prosthesis. The connection mechanism between the residual limb, liner and prosthesis can vary.
In the case of a cushion system, attachment to the fixed prosthesis shaft is achieved via a knee cap or, in the case of a distal closure, using the connecting pin.
