Never standing still

This approach is reflected in our heritage of innovation. Never standing still, we consider every angle in our ambition to create exceptional prosthetic and orthotic products. The SAFO® (Silicone Ankle Foot Orthosis) product range is a prime example of our commitment. A worldwide patented range, the SAFO® is an attractive, comfortable and affordable alternative to rigid AFOs (Ankle Foot Orthoses) that frees people from walking difficulties.

Dorset Orthopaedic received the Queen’s Award for Innovation, recognising our outstanding innovation in creating the SAFO®.

Following our success in orthotics with the SAFO®, we are now focusing on patient comfort.

Research papers show that many amputees suffer significant pain with their artificial limbs.

Our team is therefore working on pioneering liner systems (LOK-IN silicone liner) that will make sockets as comfortable as possible. Once complete, we will offer our partners access to these products. This will make it much easier for them to provide patients with comfortable prostheses.

We are also working on an above-knee liner and a product that delivers a comfortable fit for older people.

Beyond our product developments, we are seeking to set benchmark standards for prosthetic care throughout Europe. At Dorset Orthopaedic, we believe every patient deserves devices and support that help them return to normal lives. We are currently identifying likeminded professionals and companies to support us in this goal.
