Founded in 1969…
The company was founded in 1969 as “Gerätebau Odenwald”. The original purpose of the company was to assemble the HF diathermy device ULTRATHERM 608 for SIEMENS.
Over the next 25 years, a close cooperation has evolved and ultimately gbo developed and produced the complete equipment range of Physical Therapy for SIEMENS.
In 1994, SIEMENS transferred the business segment Physical Therapy to their development and production partner gbo.
Since that time, gbo is active worldwide under its own name and, based on the acquired products, has developed and expanded its product range.
In addition to SIEMENS as the main partner, gbo also worked for other major customers. These include the MBB with the Medilas coagulation laser, Bosch, VDO and others.
