Welcome to ORTHO DESIGN
ORTHO DESIGN is an innovative company that specializes since 2008 in the design and manufacturing of orthotics, prosthetics and other adaptations for animals. Always in close collaboration with veterinarians, in a multidisciplinary team, ORTHO DESIGN determines the specific needs regarding orthotics and prosthetics or other technical aids for animals with physical deficiencies. These disabilities occur when the musculoskeletal or neurological system is affected by trauma, disease or congenital causes.
With a bachelor’s degree from the Université du Québec à Montréal in biology-physiology and a diploma in orthotics and orthopedic prosthetics since 1996, Mr. Réjean Grou worked for ten years as an orthotist-prosthetist, team leader and specialist in clinical activities for a rehabilitation centre. He was also a college lecturer in the orthotics and orthopaedic prosthetics program, as well as a member of the committee for the orthotics-prosthetics sector of the Quebec government’s Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) before finally founding his own company, ORTHO DESIGN, in 2008. Mr. Grou has successfully integrated his knowledge and experience within the veterinary field, making a major contribution to the development of this little-known treatment option for the benefit of animal welfare.
