MOBIS® - The Otto Bock Mobility System

MOBIS® – is a further development of the Otto Bock Classification System® introduced in 1994. It focuses on the patient and his or her need for increased quality for life.

Simply More Quality for Life: The Otto Bock Mobility System

MOBIS® – the new Otto Bock Mobility System.
It’s our highest priority to produce quality modular prosthetic components while offering a range broad enough for you to find the best solutions for your patients.


MOBIS® – is the next generation of the Otto Bock Classification System® introduced in 1994. By expanding the weight and mobility categories, it helps you match components to your patient’s unique needs. Four Mobility Grades, instead of the familiar three functional classes, are now the basis for the system, while an additional class was also added for weights above 125 kg/275 lbs. With the aid of the MOBIS® Symbol, you can immediately determine the recommended Mobility Grade as well as the weight load for functional parts such as prosthetic feet, knee and hip joints. For structural parts like tubes and adapters, classification is still based on weight.

The Otto Bock Mobility System
 

MOBIS®– starts with four Mobility Grades*:
the Indoor Walker, the Restricted Outdoor Walker, the Unrestricted Outdoor Walker, and the Unrestricted Outdoor Walker with Especially Rigorous Demands.

*The Otto Bock MOBIS Mobility System is NOT intended to be used in the U.S. as a guide to obtaining reimbursement for prosthetic components.

 

MOBIS®– includes four weight classes:
patient weight below 75 kg/165 lbs, below 100 kg/220 lbs, below 125 kg/275 lbs and above 125 kg/275 lbs. We combine all the information you need for selecting prosthetic components in one simple symbol.

 

MOBIS®– is easy to use.
The colored-in segments in the upper half of the symbol show that this product is recommended for patients with Otto Bock Mobility Grades 1 or 2. In the lower half, the segments <165 lbs and <275 lbs are colored to show that this product is approved for a weight of up to 275 lbs.



Mobility Grade and Goal of Therapy
 

Indoor Walker
The patient has the ability or the potential to use the prosthesis for transfer purposes and to move at minimal speed on level floors. The amount of time and the distance that he/she can walk are seriously limited due to his/her condition.

Therapy Goals:
Restoration of the patient’s ability to stand and provide limited mobility indoors.

 

Restricted Outdoor Walker
The patient has the ability or the potential to move slowly with the prosthesis and can negotiate low environmental obstacles like curbs, single stairs or uneven ground. The amount of time and the distance that he/she can walk are limited due to his/her condition.

Therapy Goals:
Restoration of the patient’s ability to stand and move both indoors and with limited  mobility outdoors.

 

Unrestricted Outdoor Walker
The patient has the ability or the potential to move with the prosthesis with variable cadence and can simultaneously negotiate most environmental barriers. He/she also has the ability to move about open areas and can undertake occupational, therapeutic and other activities that do not expose the prosthesis to above-average mechanical demands. This also includes those patients who have an increased need for security due to secondary conditions (additional handicaps, special living circumstances) in connection with medium to high mobility activities. In comparison to healthy individuals, the amount of time and the distance that he/she can walk are limited only in non-essential ways.

Therapy Goals:
Restoration of the patient’s ability to walk and move without any limitations indoors and with only non-essential limitations outdoors.

 

Unrestricted Outdoor Walker with Especially Rigorous Demands
The patient has the ability to move with the prosthesis in a manner similar to the Unrestricted Outdoor Walker. The amount of time and the distance that he she can walk are unlimited. Moreover, due to the high functional demands, the prosthesis can sustain a high degree of shock, tension and torsion.

Therapy Goals:
Restoration of the patient´s ability to stand, walk and move both indoors and outdoors without any limitations.
