Professor Hans Georg Näder and the employees of the Otto Bock Group were deeply shaken and are mourning for a man who had become their friend over the years of their partnership.
We admired and supported Christian Kandlbauer. He accepted his fate in a manner that commanded great respect from all of us. The courage to face life and the firm belief in living as part of society were his constant companions. Christian Kandlbauer has a firm place in the future as the pioneer of a technology that will permit many people to resume their everyday lives.
It is with deep respect for his life that we express our condolences. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
