We have got an enthusiastic response from the crowd! The OrthoProSecure knee gets a lot of attention; the knee is a technological breakthrough and drives conversations mainly among orthotists and prosthetists.
Coming from his social values of cooperation, Henri Blanc, founder of OrthoProSecure, wants to create a prosthetic knee adapted to the resources and needs of amputees in emerging and developed countries. OrthoProSecure thus advocate a development organization of the knee which integrates the opinion and return of experience of the people involved. With orthotists /prosthetists and amputees brining fields needs we will be better positioned to satisfy them while being affordable.
It is in this cooperation atmosphere that we met 300 professionals form 40 African countries during august. Henri Blanc presented OrthoProSecure to the Minister of Health and Social Welfare of Togo. One fourth of the professionals at the congress attended the information workshop on the ProSecure knee where the capabilities of the prototype were shown. About 10 orthotists / prosthetists chose to jump into the OrthoProSecure adventure by giving of their time to test the knee on their patients.
