BTE was founded in 1979 as Baltimore Therapeutic equipment - by three business partners – a world-famous orthopedic surgeon, an entrepreneur, and an engineer/inventor who had over 25 patents and founded Baltimore Air Coil, one of the largest industrial HVAC manufacturing companies in the world.
Committed to Driving Better Patient and Business Outcomes. Every Day. For You.
“BTE” is the international language for premiere physical evaluation, early intervention, and therapeutic rehabilitation outcomes. From our 1979 birth in Baltimore, MD, we have expanded to our current international nexus in over 35 countries, with well over 4,000 clinical installations worldwide, dozens of Fortune 500 Workforce Solutions clients, and boutique, expert support of Big Pharma’s clinical drug trials through our Research Services arm.
BTE has innovation and product development at its core. We innovated and built on the initial 1979 design to provide the most functional, dynamic evaluation and testing solution for occupational therapists. Expanding into the marketplace, providing an unparalleled upper and lower extremity functional task simulation evaluation and measurement system - the Work Simulator.
Buoyed by the runaway success of the Work Simulator - a revolutionary, functional task simulation device for therapists, we continued to innovate. Enhancing its capabilities - but also - designing a more robust, engaging product - BTE Primus. A more robust, fully featured system, equipped for both occupational and physical therapy. Meanwhile, Hanoun Medical, headquartered in Canada, began on the path of creating precise evaluation systems designed to aid employers in performing pre and post hire job demands testing.
Baltimore Therapeutic Equimpent and Hanoun Medical’s simultaneous innovation and penetration of the therapeutic and workforce testing spaces worldwide began to make a partnership nearly inevitable. So in 2004, Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment merged with Hanoun Medical - to create BTE Technologies, Inc. A dynamic integration of testing and rehabilitation technology and experience. This combined clinical expertise, technological innovation, and operational strengths paved the way for a new dimension of function-based assessment and rehabilitation. Unrivaled to this day worldwide.
Today BTE produces a full product line of offerings, addressing different therapeutic and evaluative needs. Our Rehabilitation Equipment business unit, focused on resourcing clinics worldwide with the most functional, objective systems fully complements our burgeoning Workforce Solutions offerings. Helping employers take better care of their employees through the world’s most effective Prevention, Recovery, and Return to Work services.
