EVENup ® is an orthotic shoe lift that is used for compensating temporary leg length discrepancy. EVENup ® was developed by two Podiatrists in Ft Myers, Florida, after hearing complaints from patients wearing a fracture boot. The patients were experiencing pain in the back, hip and/or knee due to uneven gait when walking with an orthotic walking boot or wound care shoe.
In 2007, a patent for EVENup ® was obtained and in July of that same year, the EVENup ® shoe lift was introduced to the market. In 2011, the operation was moved from Ft Myers FL to the Atlanta area of Georgia. Meanwhile EVENup ® is available in many countries around the world.
In September 2016, the company was taken over by OPED GmbH. OPED GmbH is a German Medtech company, represented internationally with 4 subsidiaries and a global sales network. OPED GmbH develops, manufactures and distributes orthotic and rehabilitation products.
