Medical Technology Industries, Inc., DBA MTI, Inc., was founded by Jeff Baker in early 1999 expressly for the manufacture and marketing of patient and physician seating, cabinetry, and related accessories for many healthcare professionals. Mr. Baker has been working in the healthcare field since 1972. He was the Vice President of The HealthChair Group’s DMI® medical division, a long time and well known entity in many medical specialties, as well as worked for PDM®, The HealthChair Group's podiatry division, for almost twenty-five years.
His 25 years of knowing customers needs and desires, provided the perfect foundation for his company.
In 1999, MTI introduced its first patient exam chair for Podiatry. Shortly after their release in 1999, MTI designed a complete line of cabinetry and exam and surgery chairs for Otolaryngology, powered by European 24 volt DC low voltage motor technology. MTI was the first American manufacturer to employ the use of 24 volt DC powered motors in the markets we serve. MTI’s low voltage DC motor technology is ultra quiet and provides smooth and reliable operation without the use of hydraulic fluids, positioning sensors, or switches. MTI set the standard for the future development of medical chairs and other durable medical equipment in the USA.
The MTI exam and surgery chairs and Ultra treatment cabinets have been followed by an entire line of Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, Oral Surgery, and Ophthalmology chairs and tables, related accessories, and stools, all of which were designed with low voltage motors. With the experience of superior performance of the low voltage motors, MTI converted its’ line of Podiatry chairs in late 2001, to the same low voltage motor technology used in all of its other models.
In early 2005, MTI broke ground on its technology rich 50,000 sq. foot manufacturing facility designed to help support MTI’s rapid growth. This building boasts such green technology as computer controlled high-efficiency cooling and heating systems, low-e glass windows, central plenum ceilings, and additional wall and ceiling insulation.
In the spring of 2007, MTI redesigned their already successful line of Podiatry chairs in order to lower the entry height, provide more lifting capability, and give them a smoother and softer design. The new design has been a huge success and won the prestigious Gold Medal award of the American Society of Plastic Engineers for design, innovation, and unique production techniques.
Always looking to the future, MTI is committed to continually produce high-quality and competitively priced products for the markets we serve; while still being dedicated to our customers, associates, and community. We seek to be the best in our industry and will always strive to do so by employing qualified and trained associates, listening to our customer’s needs and desires, and never loosing our thirst for success.
