For generations, world-leading German prosthetics company Ottobock has been restoring mobility to people and developing wearable bionics to mobilize the human body. Published on the centenary of Ottobock, this book presents the future of human mobility as envisioned by Hans Georg Näder (born 1961), chairman of the company and grandson of its founder.

What roles will digitalization, robotics, prostheses, artificial intelligence and the imagination play in how we optimize and employ our bodies, and shape the development of humanity? Conceived and realized by Thomas Huber, with photos by Christoph Neumann, Futuring Human Mobility explores these questions and their philosophical, ethical, social, economic and medical implications in our changing global community, and incorporates interviews, essays, short stories and artwork by 40 international experts including David Chipperfield, Philipp Craven, EVA & ADELE, Yuval Noah Harari, Hugh Herr, Hiroshi Ishiguro, Chandran Nair, Carsten Nicolai, Neo Rauch, Wolfgang Schäuble, Kevin Warwick and Ranga Yogeshwar.
