The DM Orthotics story

Martin Matthews, Advanced Clinical Specialist Orthotist, had a vision to improve the lives of people living with neurological conditions. From this vision, DM Orthotics left its humble beginnings and has grown into a multi-national market leader, renowned for its high quality of products and dedication to research.

Recognizing the clinical importance of Dynamic Elastomeric Fabric Orthoses (DEFOs) for the future, Martin’s entrepreneurial spirit saw him set up a new manufacturing site for the pioneering orthoses, securing the jobs and expertise of the existing production staff at Tyco (Redruth) UK. With a small but dedicated team of 15 staff, he rebranded his DEFOs ‘Dynamic Movement Orthoses®’ (DMO®) and in November 2004, DM Orthotics was born.

DM Orthotics has since grown from strength to strength, providing patients with confidence and reassurance that both time and care, of equal empathy, is prescribed alongside their DMO® product. We now employ 55 members of staff including administrative, clinical, and manufacturing specialists that work closely together to deliver an excellent and unmatched level of customer care and service that spans worldwide.

We now work with over 20 international customers and suppliers so that no matter your location we will do our very best to ensure that you can benefit from the support a dynamic movement orthosis (DMO®) can provide. We also have a number of research partnerships with businesses and universities all over the world and we pride ourselves on our dedication to product innovation.

Ultimately our story is a very personal one that centres on people and a personal touch. We understand that no matter what condition a patient has, they all present differently, we ensure we provide an orthosis tailored to their individual needs.

Our vision and values help us achieve the very best patient outcomes that we can. Our company vision is that we want to help people achieve the impossible by being a one stop shop for all things orthotics.

Our company values were handpicked by all members of staff at DM Orthotics and focus on:

•             We care about each other and our customers and patients
