Milestones

2021

Amoena Solution

With the introduction of our expanded recovery care range, we are able to offer our customers everything they need for their breast cancer journey – from diagnosis to returning to their normal daily lives. We call it The Amoena Solution.
History Adapt Air
2019

Adapt Air – the first adjustable breast form

Adapt Air is truly unique because the wearer can adjust it herself to achieve a personalised fit. The secret is our ingenious, award-winning air chamber technology, which can be adapted with the special pump supplied, until it matches the shape and volume of her remaining breast. Perfect for weight fluctuation, lymphoedema or uneven breast development.
2015

Our breast forms get even lighter

Introduction of the Xtra Light prosthesis, offering a weight reduction of around 40% when compared to a standard breast form of similar size. Women with a larger bust, or who suffer from lymphoedema or neck pain, find lighter breast forms much more comfortable to wear.
2008

COMFORT+ Technology

No more hot, sticky breast forms. Our patented Comfort+ technology regulates the temperature between a woman’s body and her breast form by absorbing excess body heat, releasing it again as she cools down. This reduces the build-up of perspiration behind the breast form, keeping her cool, dry and comfortable all day long.
2004

PORTFOLIO EXPANSION WITH RECOVERY CARE PRODUCTS

The post-surgery care a woman receives plays a big part in the outcome of her procedure. Our Recovery Care line was developed specifically for the days and weeks after surgery to provide the best possible support for the healing process right from the start, making it the perfect complement to our breast forms, lingerie and clothing.
History Contact

Contact technology

The Amoena Contact breast form adheres directly to the skin, thanks to our special adhesive silicone. Comfortable and secure, it follows the body’s every movement and gives the wearer a unique natural feeling. Easy to put on and take off, the adhesive silicone leaves no trace on the body.

Founding

Amoena’s journey began with Cornelius Rechenberg. His goal was to find a better solution for women after breast cancer surgery than the makeshift bra fillers made of fabric or rubber that were available at the time. He believed that a breast form should feel as natural as possible, and was the first to experiment with silicone, which closely resembles the movement and behaviour of the natural breast. The result was the first ever silicone breast form that set the standard in breast care and is still the prototype for the prostheses produced today.
