Dean Cropper began designing and manufacturing physical therapy and rehab equipment in 1981. Eleven years later, he developed and patented the Bio Skin material, and since 1994, Bio Skin has been the sole focus of our company.
At Bio Skin, we design and manufacture compression supports, orthopedic braces, and human performance gear for the orthopedic, sports medicine, and recreational sports markets worldwide.
We believe our success has been the result of our focus on providing the best experience possible for people wearing our products. We focus on little details like keeping seams off sensitive areas like the back of the knee and using elastic straps to allow muscles to expand when flexed. Details like these make a big difference on products that you wear every day.
Our company is located in Ashland Oregon where we’re surrounded by natural beauty and plenty of opportunities to be active. Within a half an hour of our building, we can ski, hike, fish, raft, and run on nearly endless mountain trails. We chose to put the business here, not because it’s the easiest place to run a manufacturing business (it’s not), but because it’s such a great place to live. We enjoy great schools, restaurants, and culture, all in a small town that’s great for raising families.
