DM Orthotics (DMO) has made its life-changing medical product range more accessible by launching an online shop.
The move marks a significant milestone for the company which has garnered a worldwide reputation for bespoke, made-to-measure orthoses that are clinically proven to provide the support required by adults and children facing a range of neuro-muscular challenges. Now standard-sized products, manufactured at the company’s factory in Redruth, will be available too.
The first of two items to go on sale are shorts which have been designed to help lower limb function and posture, whilst increasing core and pelvic stability. The second is a shoulder stability orthosis that has been developed from extensive research to pull the shoulders back, support the shoulder blades and stabilise the shoulder joints – providing greater comfort, improved posture and greater range of movement.
“This is an exciting step for us and one which will make it easier for more people to take advantage of the expertise we offer,” said Chief Executive Officer Dan Severn. “A wide variety of medical conditions can be managed and improved by wearing orthoses. They literally transform lives.”
James Griffiths certainly agrees. With a neurological condition that affects his balance and coordination, he suffered regular falls until putting on a pair of DMO shorts.
“I could not believe the difference they made,” he said. “They were rigid and felt just like another layer of skin. The support was so strong, they gave me a great sense of security – it was like having scaffolding around me. The change was unbelievable! I felt as though I could walk. I could do it by myself – I didn’t need a stick!”
DMO’s new online shop is currently only available in the UK but there are plans for it to work in multiple currencies.
