Össur, which was founded in 1971, has acquired a breadth of expertise in developing, manufacturing and selling non-invasive orthopedics. The company was named after Össur Kristinsson, a prosthetics specialist from Iceland who, in the early 1970s, focussed his energies on designing a better interface for prosthetic sockets. He very quickly discovered the ideal properties of silicone, which he leveraged to create the Iceross® sleeve. Shortly thereafter, thousands of amputees worldwide were able to attach their prostheses much more efficiently and with greater comfort than ever before, with the help of Össur Kristinsson’s invention.
