DJO Incorporated’s beginnings are linked to professional sports. The company was founded in the Carlsbad, California garage of Philadelphia Eagles football player Mark Nordquist in 1978. Nordquist, who wrapped an old inner tube around his unstable knee for support, teamed up with two of his friends to explore the possibilities of neoprene. The first products for the company – then named simply DonJoy after two of the men’s wives, Donna and Joy – were “knee sleeves” constructed from old neoprene wetsuits. This innovative concept attracted interest and the company soon embarked on a research and engineering programme that would advance the world of bracing.
