We worked with Tony at Orthomotion who assisted in the process of bringing a novel orthopaedic technology to the worldwide market. They diligently worked with us on the continual development of the Quality Management System (QMS) we put in place in order to maintain CE, ISO13485 and ISO9001 approval. Orthomotion then managed the complete logistics services including stock management, logistics and accounting in accordance with the QMS and our standard operating procedures (SOP's). Their knowledge of the medical device market and attention to detail and getting everything right, made working with them very easy, especially through notified body audits.
