The name Perpedes comes from the Latin "per pedes" and means "on foot". A fitting name for a company that specializes in the health of feet. After all, our feet are responsible for taking us from A to B and often they are given too little attention. They should work and carry us through life, if possible without injuries or other ailments. Nevertheless, feet are a very complex topic. 
Not infrequently, we have minor deformities or injuries that we simply "tick off" without being aware of what effects these can have on the rest of the body. Back pain, for example, can come from a malpractice while walking, which we do not even notice.

The beginning...

Healthy feet and the best possible healing process for injuries to the human gait belongs to our entire commitment. The development and production of trend-setting products of orthopedic technology and orthopedic footwear technology are the focus of our offer. Particularly noteworthy is the specialized development, production and processing of our own fiber composite materials. Outstanding product and material diversity, competence, service and uncompromising quality form the basis of our continued success until today.

In 1945, the sole proprietorship "Helmut Röck" was founded by the orthopedic mechanic Helmut Röck in Kirchheim with the purpose of providing orthopedic care to war disabled persons. This was finally converted in the 1980s to "Helmut Röck GmbH" and 2003 followed by the first participation, and later the acquisition of "Perpedes Fußstützen GmbH". Both companies appeared under the name "Perpedes Röck Group" in the future. In 2009, finally, "Perpedes SK" was founded in Slovakia and in 2014 the name changed from "Helmut Röck GmbH" to "Perpedes GmbH", whereby company name and main brand run under the same name.
