AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 24, 2023 – Hanger has awarded its 10th annual Partner Awards to five outstanding companies for their role in supplying products and services used to provide excellent orthotic and prosthetic care and patient outcomes. The Rising Star, Collaboration, Innovation, and Operational Performance Partner Award recipients are carefully selected by members of Hanger’s clinical and operational teams, while the Clinicians' Choice Award winner is chosen by Hanger clinicians.

Below are more details on the awards and this year’s recipients:

  • Rising Star: The Rising Star Award recognizes an emerging leader driving industry change. Trend Medical received the award due to their efforts in expanding Hanger’s existing Coreline product offering, which provided innovative and effective clinical solutions for orthotic knee and spine patients.
  • Collaboration: The Collaboration Award is granted to a partner that made outstanding contributions resulting in shared success. OssKin was recognized with the award for a number of factors, including providing structured education to make their 3D-printed custom knee brace available to Hanger Clinic patients with knee osteoarthritis, which included a first-of-its-kind patented knee joint system to help prevent pain. 
  • Innovation: The Innovation Award recognizes a partner that has exhibited expansive thinking in product innovation and technology, resulting in positive clinical outcomes. Fillauer was chosen to receive the award for providing prosthetic feet that feature adjustable torsion and vertical shock reduction, successfully combining high flexibility and dynamic performance to meet the needs of lower limb loss patients.
  • Operational Performance: The Operational Performance Award is granted to a partner that outperformed industry benchmarks in quality, efficiency, and cost containment. Anclote received the award due to factors including their efforts to streamline the production of Hanger’s proprietary AmpuShield limb protector, which resulted in a more cost effective and time efficient fabrication process. 
  • Clinicians' Choice: The Clinicians’ Choice Award recognizes an exceptional partner who consistently went above and beyond to support Hanger Clinic clinicians and their patients.
