As a sales representative most days were spent targeting new customers and training existing medical staff on proper use of the equipment. Once the territory was established most days scheduled themselves, although it took almost a year to get there.
Dynasplint challenged me to become an expert on the human body. I was privileged to work with Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapists, and patients to ensure proper healing after surgeries. I was rewarded with seeing patients gaining their independence and health after our treatment.
We work with physical therapist, occupational therapist and orthopedic physicians to assist with increased range of motion. The product is great, but difficult to establish as a tool for therapist and physicians. Very little guidance or support is given in establishing a sales territory, so you are dependent on cold calling orthopedic clinics, which is not typically well received.
Large Orthopaedic Sales Company out of Maryland. In business for over 33 years. Met with doctors, therapist, and patients all day long. Fitted patients and trained them on how to use the dynamic splints to ensure gain in range of motion at the desired joint. Lots of public speaking, which I enjoy the most.
Medical Sales Representative (Former Employee) – , – October 1, 2013
Good company to get your foot in the door in medical sales. If you work extremely hard and also have a dense territory, you can be successful in the long term with this company. That being said, they recently laid off 500 employees.
Dynasplint was a great career for the most part. I worked with neurological patients struggling with ROM (range of motion) deficits who could benefit from splinting. I was able to perform evaluations, fittings, and follow ups with all my patients. I also performed and managed all necessary office work from my home office. I have a real passion for people and helping those who truly need it. I was often the last hope for many of my patients as far as helping them improve their ROM. I loved being a light to their day and making our time together as enjoyable as possible. I very much enjoyed the flexibility and creativity this job allowed. My manager lived in Houston so I had to be very resourceful on my own for much of the time. The job required a very high need for extreme organization as well as time management and attention to detail. I loved the sense of teamwork and willingness to help from fellow co-workers. We would send daily emails and messages to be positive resources for one another. The most challenging part of the job was having to balance patient load and accounts visits regularly, along with performing all office work. I was in charge of obtaining all clinical and demographic information to verify authorization and coverage as well as creating and sending prescriptions to the doctors before fitting the patients with their splints. This fact also helped me greatly strengthen my ability to multitask and do my very best in every aspect of the job. I was building a very successful clientele and patient load in my territory before the company wide layoff at the beginningmore... of August.less
Flexibility, something different every day, patient interaction, good pay
A lot of driving, healthcare challenges, never really "off work"
Dynasplint is a great company to work for in terms of people and service. If you are looking for big money fast, don't look here. You get out of this job exactly what you put in and bring in. Work hard and stay on top of YOUR business and it will pay off. Slack off and you only hurt yourself. The ball is very much in your own court and despite the obstacles you really do have the power to be successful with this company. Its a three way sell to fill a Dynasplint order so hone your skills before applying. Good Luck! and Stretch Beyond Your Expectations.
this compnay only cared about the bottom line. They would raise your quota all the time so you couldnt make any money. If your territory didnt have insurance plans that covered the splint you were out of luck
