Who are OPED?

For those that may not be familiar with OPED and their operations they were established in 1992 by Andreas Haßler, Engineer and ski boot Developer, together with Professor Peter Habermeyer, Orthopaedic Surgeon, and his brother Stephan Habermeyer. They developed a range of trauma-related products based around their Vacuum 12 technology and innovative treatment protocols which have benefitted patients and practitioners alike for the past 25 years. Today, OPED boasts operations in 6 countries around the globe and continues its reputation of being at the forefront of trauma management.


“We solve health issues better and faster than anybody else."


OPED develops, manufactures and sells innovative product concepts in the field of their core competence – modern Orthosis. Replacing the uncomfortable plaster cast with a light, functional vacuum splint was the vision of the OPED founders.

Their vision became reality in 1993, when the VACOped – still the most successful OPED product, even today – came onto the market. However, the OPED spirit of invention was in no way satisfied with just the VACOped, which is the state-of-the-art treatment nowadays. The product range has been expanded to encompass an entire family of vacuum orthoses. Whether it is torn ligaments, Achilles tendon rupture or a fractured wrist: OPED products offer optimum care with the highest degree of mobility and hygiene.
