Quinn Medical Story

Originally founded by Allwyn and Todd Thornton, Quinn Medical initiated sales of their SLEEQ Spinal Therapy System in 2011. The SLEEQ brace was the first truly Universal-fit design, with a simplistically ingenious method for adjusting the circumference of the brace to accommodate virtually any size patient. This innovative and disruptive technology quickly gained industry attention and established Quinn Medical as a formidable force in the spinal bracing market.

Our strategic partnership with Townsend Design positions Quinn Medical to offer a wider range of products and customer support programs. As a signature brand of Thuasne USA, and with distribution throughout Thuasne’s global network, Quinn Medical’s clinically-proven spinal bracing solutions will benefit patients throughout the United States and in countries around the world.
