Maramed Orthopedic Systems was established in 1972 by Alan R. Finnieston, CPO and Harry Shufflebarger, MD. Their goal was to market the custom fit prefabricated orthoses and fracture braces they helped research and develop with the Department of Orthopedics at the University of Miami. They strongly believed that the anatomically correct fully functional orthopedic devices, resulting from their R&D, would accommodate the vital needs of the patient and the practitioner. Today, Maramed Orthopedic Systems is known world-wide for providing the very best in innovative cost-effective products. Unlike most prefabricated orthoses, Maramed's fracture braces enjoy the distinction of having been CLINICALLY TESTED in over 5,000 cases. The company continues to be a driving force in the development of orthoses used in trauma and in clinical and rehabilitative applications.
