THE meeting point for pedorthics in Germany and world-wide

The ORTHOÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK is the only trade fair especially designed for the pedorthic industry.
Manufacturers, wholesalers and service providers of the industry can find their ideal platform here to present their service offering from the area of orthopedic appliances. Since the start in the year 2011 the number of visitors and exhibitors has continuously risen. The two-day congress with 30 specialized lectures and almost as many seminars offers a complete overview of pedorthics and decisively invigorates the advancement of this trade and the linkage to associated working areas.

Thus ORTHOÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK has developed into the most important meeting point for the industry!
