Corporate Name:

President: Ryan Arbogast

Areas of Specialty:
Lower extremity prosthetic products

CAD/CAM for the prosthetic and orthotic industry

Key Product Lines:

LimbLogic® – the first remote-control, waterproof electronic vacuum suspension system. The system provides amputees secure vacuum suspension without worry about environmental elements.

OMEGA® CAD system – Powerful CAD software that clinicians can use to manipulate 3D images of residual limbs or orthotic shapes via a laser scanner to create prosthetic and orthotic devices.

Brief Company History:
The Ohio Willow Wood Company was founded in 1907 and has served the prosthetic and orthotic industry for over 110 years. Our company founder, William E. Arbogast, personally experienced the difficulties an amputee faced in the early 1900s…poorly-fitting, uncomfortable, and unreliable prosthetic products. After just two years of becoming a bilateral amputee due to a railroad accident, William founded The Ohio Willow Wood Company making it easier for prosthetists to obtain quality materials for their patients.

Headquartered in Mt. Sterling, Ohio, the company has become a global leader in designing and manufacturing lower limb prosthetic components, and is dedicated to providing the best prosthetic solutions possible for amputees. In addition to traditional manufacturing, WillowWood also develops CAD software and equipment for the orthotic and prosthetic community.

While many aspects of WillowWood have evolved and changed over the years, the company’s commitment to the orthotic and prosthetic industry remains constant. The business challenges have changed as the market continues to consolidate and technology continues to drive innovation and ingenuity in the manufacturing of prosthetic solutions. In June 2019, DW Healthcare Partners (DWHP) purchased a majority stake in WillowWood – an intentionally bold step.  

WillowWood’s values and mission remain unchanged and will continue to guide the company and the work we do. While DWHP brings new advantages, our promise to deliver reliable products that enhance the quality of life for those who use them remains.
