The Quickchange Adapter is so easy to use that even children can exchange their prosthetic components in just a few seconds – for example, to switch from an everyday to a sports prosthesis. For users, this means more freedom and flexibility for a more active life. Because with the new Quickchange Adapter, any Ottobock sports prosthesis can be used without any problems and without having to have another socket fitted.
But the adapter offers advantages not only for sports activities: Putting on and taking off trousers or sitting for long periods on trains and planes also becomes more comfortable thanks to the simple removal of prosthesis components.
Ottobock already worked closely with users during the further development of the product. The honest and constructive feedback on each new fitting has contributed significantly to making the adapter particularly easy to use. Arne Jörn, Chief Operation Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Ottobock, also emphasises how important the uncomplicated collaboration was during the development process: "The new Quickchange Adapter is an excellent example of how we bring together the expertise of our developers, production engineering and production with the experience of our users to get the best out of our products. In this way, we can significantly improve users' everyday lives with a small, inconspicuous adapter."
The product will initially be available in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Spain and Portugal as well as Australia. Ottobock will then offer the Quickchange Adapter globally from May 2023.
