DJO is proud of its reputation as both a leading edge innovator, and as an invaluable source of expertise and support to the clinician in the field. The company has a long history of commitment to clinical research and development both in-house and through collaborating with reputable clinical and biomechanical institutions around the world. At our Californian headquarters, we have a ‘Biomechanics Lab’ where we can rigorously test the efficacy of our products. This Lab was instrumental in the development of DonJoy’s patented ‘Four Points of Leverage’ bracing methodology.
In 1993, DJO built its own Clinical Education & Research Facility (CERF) which was the first of its kind in the US. Virtually any open or arthroscopic orthopaedic surgical procedure can be recreated or performed in the lab, making CERF an invaluable educational tool and resource for all levels of practicing health care professionals. This facility is frequently used by orthopaedic surgeons from across the globe for surgical skills training and the development of new or innovative orthopaedic surgical techniques.
