OdrA, an orthotic redesign that exceeds expectations for comfort and esthetics.

Équilibre, a company that specializes in orthopedic devices, asked NOVO to design a revamped version of its patented OdrATM solution.

The redesign, which unquestionably provides added value to the product, is a collaborative effort from the industrial designers at NOVO, the research and development team, and orthotists at Équilibre, who tailor-make every brace from a leg scan.

Beyond industrial design, the development process involved interviewing patients and orthotists, as well as analyzing the other products available on the market.

The impact of a good design

The smooth curves and soft materials are comfortable for patients to wear. The bold and colorful fasteners, which evoke the Équilibre brand image, are better integrated into the straps and padding.

The result

This collaboration between NOVO and Équilibre has made the new OdrATM a brace that can be worn with pride like the high-tech gear that it is. And it does it while providing total comfort to the thousands of patients who use it, for upwards of 8 hours a day.
