The innovation for documenting the real wear time of orthopaedic aids.

Orthotimer enables, for the first time ever, the documentation of therapeutic aids for your patients over a long period of time. The key component of the Orthotimer system is a very small sensor, which can be very easily integrated into a variety of orthotics, for example; shoes, braces, foot orthotics, artificial limbs, bandages, etc. With a wireless readout unit, the wearing time information stored on the sensor is transferred to the respective software. The data can then be shown on the computer via a variety of presentations and presentation methods, evaluated and then, if necessary, directly discussed with the patients. With just one click, you can have a wearing time report. The system independently calculates the average daily wearing time of the aid.  In the sectional view of the detail analysis, due to the listing of the date and time, you can precisely determine when the aid needs to be worn or when it shouldn’t be worn.

Orthotimer is perfect for studies on therapeutic aids. In the scientific world, the information obtained from the Orthotimer system can be exported as raw data. This data can then be used and processed by all sorts of scientific programmes. With Orthotimer, the compliance of the various patient groups that are to be studied can be documented in the simplest manner possible.  this means, a study will appreciate greatly in value.

Improved Patient Management

The knowledge of the patients’ wear performance supports patient management in an everyday clinical setting, providing valuable information on the wearing habits. This is especially an advantage with the time-critical supply of assistance for health issues such as scoliosis, hip dysplasia or diabetes.  

Wear Time System

The success of the therapy with time-critical orthopaedic aids is directly connected to the discipline the patient shows in wearing the respective aid.  For the team treating a patient, it has almost been impossible up to now to measure poor compliance in the case of a non-functioning orthopaedic aid and to figure out why the aid is failing to function properly. Orthotimer is an electronic wearing time system that thoroughly documents the wearing time of the device by outpatients.


The heart of the Orthotimer system is a small dust and watertight microsensor (9 x 13 x 4.5 mm) that can be easily integrated in all sorts of orthopaedic aids, for example, orthotic devices, shoes, insoles, prostheses, bandages, medical (compression) stockings, etc. Each sensor features a unique individual ID number and can be automatically connected to the patients registered in the database. 18 Month warranty is provided on all sensors.

Technical Specifications:

  • Dust and watertight.
  • Small and flat, only W9mm x L13mm x H4.5mm.
  • Stores the time, date, and temperature every 15 minutes.
  • Ring buffer with 100 days of storage capacity.
  • Temperature precisions +/- 0.1 °C.
  • Quartz-controlled time measurement (32,768 kHz).
  • Wireless data transfer via RFID technology (ISO 15693).
  • An automatic inspection of the electrical supply status takes place and there’s a transmission of the battery’s state of charge while the patient data is being read. This takes place once every 150 minutes.
  • Lithium dry cell battery 3.0 V/5.5 mAh (a lifespan of at least 18 months).


The microsensor is controlled with the wireless reading device and the saved wearing time dates are transferred to the software. The reading device is connected with the computer via a USB plug.

Product Features:

  • The reader is equipped with a USB plug.
  • Wireless activation of the battery for the registration of the sensor.
  • Wireless reading and transmission of the patient wear times to the Orthotimer software.
  • 2 Year warranty is provided on the reading device.


The software is used to control the microsensor and produce the wear time analysis of the patient data. The wear time is presented in various charts.  Depending on what the user would like, you can observe a total wear time overview or an individually selected range extract from the entire monitoring period of time. The readings are then aligned seamlessly next to each other in the software after each reading is taken in order to get an error-free picture of the overall wear time. With the function “generate raw data“, the measurement data can be transferred into an Excel file and analysedfurther use of for scientific studies. With the “Report” function, you can generate a report of the patient’s wear time. This can then be made available to the patient and/or the doctor.  

Various possibilities for graphic presentation and analysis:

  • Hourly evaluations.
  • Detail analysis of patient wear times.
  • Generate raw data as a CSV file.
  • Create wear time report as a PDF file.Patient-specific wear time details can be stored, for example, by the minimum wear time per day, or how long the aid should be worn for periods at a time.
  • Patients can be allotted to various groups that the user determines.
  • A measurement period of time can be displayed at any time or excluded, if necessary.
  • A seamless documentation of the wear time over years is possible.
  • Software in English (en) or German (de).
  • Free software updates.

System Requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows.
  • Not compatible with Apple Mac.

Kit Contains:

  • User manual (27 pages) - en, fr, de.
  • Quick start guide - en, fr, de.
  • Instructional video.
