PPL Biomechanics Healthcare
PPL Biomechanics is Ireland’s leading manufacturer and supplier of custom made/stock orthotic devices, orthopaedic footwear and offloading products. They exclusively deal with medical practitioners and are the leading provider of post-graduate biomechanics courses in Ireland. PPL has more than twenty years of experience supplying devices to practitioners working in a wide range of fields including sports medicine, orthopaedics, offloading & wound care, paediatrics, MSK, rheumatology, special needs and neurological deficits. In 1996, PPL, Podiatry Products Limited, was founded in a small factory unit, with the aim of supplying orthotic devices to other practitioners. Julie Hegarty, who now manages operations and heads up the Technical Team, joined them in 1997. Together they built the company from the ground up and now employ more than thirty local staff in the factory, offices and warehouse on Tramore Road, Cork City. PPL prides themselves on understanding practitioner needs and the challenges they face in managing their varied and complex patient profiles. While being ahead of the crowd in terms of education and product design, PPL has always taken a very practical, rational and cost effective approach to product selection.
