We only use the highest quality materials to construct products that are made to last, and 98% of the products we sell are fabricated, sewn, and distributed from our facility in Pace, Florida. Like any other company, we exist to be profitable. We achieve this goal by delivering exceptional quality to the end user of our products.
Our polyurethanes are High-Resiliency and Gel Infused Visco Elastic (G.I.V.E.). Our fabric meets or exceeds healthcare grades. We inspect every item we manufacture twice to ensure our devices meet the highest quality standards, and every employee is personally accountable for the items or components they approve or create. This attention to detail extends into every other facet of our business. From procurement to customer service, from manufacturing to our ordering process, JDM Medical is committed to Quality.
"I started JDM Medical in the garage of my home in 1989; a simple operation with one mission: I wanted to improve the lives of those individuals whose needs for durable medical positioning equipment were not being met by the large device manufacturers. At that time, 28 years ago, devices were mass-produced for the sake of cost reduction and efficiency—the Henry Ford concept. These products were “universal” in their design as well as their functions. However, people are created differently and with unique medical needs. Standard devices did not work. It is often stated that, “necessity is the mother of invention,” and it was this original concept of meeting an individual’s unique needs through ‘resident specific positioning’ to make them more comfortable that led to the birth of a new industry and the creation of this company.
A lot has changed in the past 28 years, but it has never been more exciting to be a part of JDM Medical. Necessity has called repeatedly. Each time JDM has answered the call. We have expanded our staff, ownership, and facilities over the years. We have incorporated new and better healthcare materials in our products. We have developed new product lines for the Hospice, Home Health, and DME industries along with the Long-Term Care industry.
We have grown enough that we can now continue to make unique custom devices for those who need them while at the same time producing a full line of universal products for everyone. We can fill a single custom order for an individual in need of a unique device, fill the needs of an entire facility, manufacture and sell thousands for international distributors.
There have been many changes in the medical industry over the years, but the goal of JDM Medical has remained the same as it was the first day in my garage. It is my personal desire, as well as that of my employees, to improve the lives of those individuals we have been called to help.
Yes, “our mission is to position.”
One final comment: I truly and humbly thank each of you who have so willingly passed on your knowledge, your passion, and your generosity to JDM over the years. Without you, we would not exist. I hope that no matter what tomorrow brings, we never forget that."
