Does Bionics send their work off site for manufacturing or do you do it in-house?
Here at Bionics we believe that you deserve the best, therefore we manufacturer the majority of our orthoses and all of our prostheses on site. By doing our own modification and manufacturing we can have total control over the process and ensure that you are given the highest quality product available.
