I had the pleasure of visiting Össur, an Icelandic flagship company with large and successful operations in the United States. As a manufacturer of prosthetics, bracing, and support, Össur is a world leader in the design of products that make enormous improvements in the mobility of people. It was impressive to observe the design and manufacture of several of their most advanced products, especially the Power Knee and the Rheo Knee. Össur´s products have made an enormous difference in the life of American wounded veterans and their partnership with communities and the Walter Reed Hospital is commendable.
