Mölndal, Sweden – March 2nd 2023 — Integrum (publ) (Nasdaq First North Growth Market: INTEG B) today announces that the company has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023.

“There are more than 2 million amputees in the U.S. alone and nearly 185,000 new amputations are performed every year across the country. Because of our OPRA Implant System, individuals who have or need above-knee amputation have the opportunity to be relieved from unnecessary pain and frustration, connect their body and mind and help them live life to the fullest,” said Rickard Brånemark, MD, PhD, orthopedic surgeon and founder of Integrum.
In 1990, the first iteration of the OPRA Implant System was implanted in a bilateral transfemoral patient in Sweden. Developed and refined since then, the OPRA Implant System is the only FDA-approved bone-anchored implant system specifically designed for use in amputees in the U.S. It is indicated for individuals who have undergone transfemoral, or above-knee, amputations, and who have, or are anticipated to have, rehabilitation problems with, or cannot use, a conventional socket prosthesis. The OPRA Implant System provides increased mobility, stability, enhanced comfort, and a reduction in pressure, chafing, skin breakdown, and pain.

We are thrilled to be recognized by Fast Company for our longstanding mission and dedication to improving the quality of life for amputees everywhere and look forward to the next 30 years of changing lives,” said Thomas Dugan, president of Integrum, Inc. “”
