To request an Ottobock account, please complete the account application form. This application will be reviewed by our finance department to verify your business details and set purchasing terms.
Otto Bock sells its products only to those that are directly involved in clinical assessment and fitting of the product(s) to the patient/user, with the exception of Prosthetic and Orthotic schools. There is no transfer of Otto Bock HealthCare’s limited warranty for any products that have been resold or redistributed.
After submitting the application form, you will immediately receive a confirmation email including a copy of your information entered on the form. We will respond via fax or email within one to two business days whenever possible. Your online account will be created along with your purchasing account.
If you already have an existing Ottobock purchasing account but don't know your number, please contact Customer Service. We are happy to help you.
Simply sign in to see pricing and add items to the cart.
If you don't have a login, here are some things you should keep in mind when registering:
- If you already have an Ottobock purchasing account number, please have that handy when registering online. If you do not have an Ottobock purchasing account, please apply first for approval from our finance department.
- For verification purposes, it may take up to 24 hours for your online account registration to be completed. We will send you a one-time email to notify when your login is ready.
- The email you provide will also be your user login. (Try to avoid using shared emails if you would like to collect items in your cart and do not want to share passwords.)
If you need help deciding which account access is right for you, view this overview:
It simply defines what access the user has to the shop. Overall we are offering 3 different account access levels:
Note: All three roles give you access to list pricing and customer specific pricing in your cart.
Clinician (Shopper): The Clinician, formerly known as Shopper, can decide which product is needed. The biggest difference to the other roles, is that a Clinician may not submit PO's or convert quotes, but is allowed to save carts and create quotations to be submitted for purchasing later. The Clinician is also able to see current and past orders and track shipments to help scheduling where necessary.
If you are a clinician and have purchasing power within your company, please consider the Purchaser role.
Purchaser: The Purchaser is is authorized to procure for the company. As a Purchaser you can see your account history, including quotes, purchases (including tracking), and invoices - plus you can place orders and convert quotations.
Admin: The Administrator has access to everything our shop has to offer, including managing all online user accounts for their company. This will also include access to accounts payable functionality as we develop and release it.
Here is a simple overview:
The sky is the limit!
You can sign up just one user or every employee and coworker who would benefit from having shop access. Simply make sure that each registered user uses their own (unique) email address, so you avoid sharing passwords and carts.
Are you responsible for multiple locations with different Ottobock purchasing accounts? No problem! Simply sign-up for each online account using your own email address. After that, we simply give you a choice which account you'd like to access every time you login.
