Motion like movement, Emotion like feeling. Together, in a positive synergy, Emotion: the emotion of movement, the emotion of being able to move like before. Thanks to orthopaedic products that are not only the cutting edge of technique, but that also have a soul. Because the products themselves make it possible to rediscover the pleasure of movement.
Lima Corporate lands in the U.S.
The central focus is no longer on the excellence of the product, but the excellence of the service. In the same way, the central focus on the man is highlighted in all its expressions.
The central focus is on the planner man, whose creative thought and craftsman-like attention to the details allow him to work in keeping up with technology. To give life to a perfect product.
The central focus is on the salesman, who knows perfectly the features of the product and can train the surgeon man on the product at best.
The central focus is on the surgeon man, who lets the patient man enjoy the quality of the product and recover a higher functionality. This is at the heart of our service.
The focus on man is the core of our current evolution.
This is the idea at the basis of Lima Corporate – Orthopaedic Emotion.
