Ottobock’s acquisition of the BeBionic multi-articulated prosthetic hand from Hugh Steeper Limited


Gowling WLG’s corporate team has acted on behalf of Ottobock on its acquisition of the BeBionic multi-articulated prosthetic hand from Hugh Steeper Limited.

The team advised Ottobock, a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of exo-prosthetics, on the transaction – which saw it expand its product portfolio with the addition of the multi-articulated BeBionic hand.

The BeBionic hand, which is being transferred from the British med-tech company Steeper, lies in the diversity of gripping patterns such as separate control of the index finger.

The Gowling WLG team was led by corporate lawyers David Vaughan (Picture) and Laura Kayani who worked closely with IP lawyers Luke Kempton and Mathilda Davidson and commercial lawyer Mike Reed to finalise the deal.
