Dedication and craftsmanship

PEOPLE ARE THE CENTRAL FOCUS OF THE PROTHESEN-MANUFAKTUR®. We are passionate about developing an individual solution for every customer – one that supports the customer every step of the way and improves their quality of life.

Every prosthesis is manufactured using state-of-the-art technology.

Forging hammer meets laser scanner

The Prothesen-Manufaktur® – which was known as Prothesen Schuster until 2012 – was founded by expert orthopaedic technician Richard Schuster and combines his 40 years of professional experience with the innovative skills of a young team.

Our expertise has never ceased to advance since the company was founded in 1994. We continually put new materials to the test and integrate the latest technologies, such as the 3D laser scanner. Although our capabilities grow at the same pace as technical advancement, one factor still remains critical: our personal contact with the customer.




Expertise and personality

The members of our team are committed, multi-talented and international. Orthopaedic technicians and biomedical engineers work closely together on every device in order to ensure an optimised result and minimum delivery time. Besides specialist skills, we place particular importance on fully understanding each assignment, right down to the smallest detail.

Our office team ensures a flexible, friendly approach to customer relationships – from arranging the first appointment to final liaisons with health insurance companies.

We speak both German and English.
