Pierre's Story

Pierre, a 20 years old man from Nantes, is the first ORTHOPUS user. We met him thanks to our collaboration with ESEAN AFP France Handicap, a Nantes’ healthcare facility. His arm mobility was limited and didn’t allow him to raise his arm more than a few minutes, for fixed or moving efforts.

Since october 2021, he has used every day an ORTHOPUS Supporter’ prototype.

I want to try the ORTHOPUS Supporter

For now the ORTHOPUS Supporter is available in France with ERGO-DIFFUSION, in Netherlands with Sarkow b.v, in Norway with Cypromed, and in Germany with Rehamed Power.

Any question?

The ORTHOPUS Supporter does not move instead of the arm: it follows the movements. That is why the person who wants to use it must still have mobility in the arm.

To date, there is no precise scientific study on the subject. However, it has been observed that this type of device reduce fatigue and keeps the body in motion, which can prevent numbness in the joints.

Yes, it is ! The ORTHOPUS Supporter will be fixed on the wheelchair by a medical dealer trained to its installation and a table attachment will be provided. It is therefore possible to quickly move the Supporter from a wheelchair to a table and vice-versa.
