The Customer
About The Customer

In 1984, Häussler opened a clinical workshop at the University and Rehabilitation Clinics of Ulm (RKU) to strengthen the connection between medical sciences and research.

Häussler is more than the average medical supply store. Häussler orthotists and prosthetists work closely with the  Ulm University of Applied Sciences where medical engineering and biomechatronics expert Professor Dr. Felix Capanni works and conducts research. Steffen Matyssek, a former research assistant for Prof. Dr. Capanni, manages the Häussler research and development department. In addition to supervising bachelor and master theses, Matyssek links research with commercial implementation.
