When Johannesburg was in its infancy, nine years after the discovery of gold in 1895, a young German immigrant
established his own medical company by the name of Bill and Oehmen.
The main activities of this company were surgical instrument making and artificial limbs. This enterprise continued till
1921 when the business was sold to Mr. Barford and Mr. Jones. The name Barford Jones became the successor to Bill
and Oehmen. During the mid 50’s the instrument side of the business was closed and Orthotics and Prosthetics became
the main thrust of the organisation.
In 1993, Barford Jones acquired Orthomed, and Orthotic and Prosthetic supply company which had been successfully
trading for thirteen years. At the same time, the two companies merged, the decision was made to trade from thereon as Orthomed.
From the humble beginnings, a century ago, to the sophistication and diversity of today’s products could not have been
envisaged. Orthomed now supplies nationwide and to surrounding African countries.
