NEW PARTNERSHIP UPDATE

2021 SAW THE PARTNERSHIP OF TWO OF GERMANYS TOP MEDICAL DEVICE MANUFACTURERS. ERWIN KOWSKY GMBH & CO. KG PARTENERED WITH ITS NOW PARENT COMPANY OSSENBERG. KOWSKY AND OSSENBERG STILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE ON A SEPARATE BASIS AND CONTINUE TO MANUFACTURE THEIR PRODUCTS AS TWO INDIVIDUAL COMPANIES.

2022 HAS BROUGHT MANY CHALLENGES FOR MANUFACTURERS, SUPPLY BOTTLE NECKS, RAW MATERIAL SHORTAGES AND PRICE INCREASES, THE DOUBLING OF CONTAINER FREIGHT COSTS ARE TO NAME BUT A FEW. ONE MAJOR CHANGE FROM BREXIT BROUGHT THE INTRODUCTION OF MDR (MEDICAL DEVICE REGULATION) AND THE ASSOCIATED LABELLING OBLIGATIONS. AS A RESULT AND TO REDUCE COSTS, KOWSKY CRUTCHES WILL NOW BE SHIPPED WITH OSSENBERG MDR LABELLING AS THEY ARE THE PARENT COMPANY. IN LINE WITH THIS SOME MODELS MAY USE OSSENBERG FERRULES IN ORDER TO MEET PRODUCTION DEMANDS. ALL KOWSKY CRUTCH MODELS REMAIN THE SAME AS BEFORE, THE ORIGINAL OPEN CUFF AND UNITED CLOSED CUFF ARE MANUFACTURED AND SOLD IN THE EXACT SAME WAY ONLY NOW WILL BE LABELLED WITH OSSENBERG MDR LABELS. 

INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW KOWSKY UNITED CRUTCH

REPLACING THE EVER POPULAR VARIO CRUTCH, THE UNITED RETAINS ALL OF THE VARIOS EXACT QUALITIES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE REDESIGNED CUFF HINGE WHICH NOW INCLUDES A FIXED HINGE MECHANISIM WHICH CONSISTS OF AN ALUMINIUM HINGE CONNECTING THE CUFF TO THE CUFF POST, THIS REDUCES THE RISK OF DETACHMENT AND STRENGTHENS THE OVERALL INTEGRITY OF THE HINGE.
