Swiss company with many years of expertise
in the development of a easy-to-use CPM device for the hallux

It began in 2005 with a vision and the first successful functioning prototype of Dr Franz Freuler, an orthopaedic surgeon, and culminated in 2018 in the founding of the medical-technology firm U-Sana Medical AG in Oberwil (BL), Switzerland.

Through many years of cooperation with renowned podiatric orthopaedic surgeons and experienced orthopaedic technicians, U-Sana Medical AG optimised and refined the concept and developed an innovative, easy-to-use, CPM device with an appealing design for rapid regeneration following hallux valgus surgery. Two patents have since been granted in Europe and the USA, and a third patent has been applied for.

U-Sana Medical AG places great importance on effectiveness and safety in combination with ease of use, while focussing on high standards of quality and reliability. Thanks to cooperation with select accredited Swiss medical-engineering partners, “Developed and manufactured in Switzerland” is guaranteed.
