Leadership 25+ years in the making
Spinal Technology was founded in 1991 by Jim Tierney, the President and owner of Spinal Technology, Inc. Over 40 years ago, Jim began his career in Orthotics and Prosthetics at Children’s Hospital in Boston, where he earned the confidence of physicians whom he assisted in managing patients with scoliosis and kyphosis diagnoses.
As a highly skilled technician in the fabrication of spinal bracing, Jim saw a need to advance the standard for high quality spinal orthoses products. The mission was and still is to cultivate a partnership with the practitioner and to utilize the most advanced research and development available. Under Jim’s direction, Spinal Technology has become the leader in Custom Spinal Orthotics. With Jim’s entrepreneurial spirit, it was a natural progression for him to take his expertise and initiative and bring it to the fabrication of lower extremity devices. In 2006, Lower Limb Technology, a division of Spinal Technology, Inc., formed and is now recognized for its expertise in the fabrication of high quality lower limb and prosthetic devices.
