Default Dynasplint, Dynasplint, Dynasplint

I don't work at Dynasplint and never have. I don't know the company that way. I know Dynasplint as one of the most upstanding companies in the area I live in. I see Dynasplint sponsoring local events like the 4th of July Parade, helping the local Severna Park Assistance Network with canned food drives, and donating lots of money to charity and worthy causes like the University of Maryland's School of Medicine.

I know several people that work at Dynasplint, and I grew up knowing the owner and his family as kind, generous, and caring people. At that time I didn't know that there was even a correlation between them and Dynasplint.

So that's where I'm coming from. Anyone that talks about Dynasplint ownership being greedy or selfish, just doesn't know what they are talking about. Those people should look inside themselves for those characteristics, before they plaster Dynasplint with that kind of unwarranted hyperbole.

If you are adept at sales, and have some experience or an interest in phisiology, this is a great place. The product is top notch and sales support getting better all the time. Like any company the top 20% do 80% of the work, but I know one rep who is there in under a year. Give it a shot!

The Dynasplint device actually is quality-and it works. Good rep. with PTs, OTs, and Ortho Surg that know it. Getting new docs on board and prescribing is the sales job. Bottom line-you must be good at sales and like working with patients.

For those on here with knowledge of Dynasplint, can you tell me about the foot/ankle division? The recruiter told me that insurance coverage isn't very good on these products. True? What else can anyone tell me about this division? I have reached out to some current reps but haven't been able to connect with them yet. Thanks for the help!

Answer 1- You do custom-fit patients, but not at their residence- usually at PT or Dr.'s office.
Answer 2- Yes, $50K and up depending on the part of the country is 1st year compensation.
Answer 3- About the Ankle & Foot Division. Insurance contracting is different all over the country in dynamic splinting, but you may want to know that the top sales consultant in the company actually is an A&F guy. You can contact Todd Domangue at Tdomangue@dynasplint.com. He is the Managing Director of the Division and will be glad to talk to you.
Answer 4- Top competition is probably static progressive splinting by Empi. Not nearly as good as dynamic splinting-check out the research on this.

It's like a franchise opportunity, but they pay you a salary instead of you having to take out a loan to buy into it yourself - if you are looking for a great long term opportunity Dynasplint is great! Don't think about $50K-$65K the first year ... think about growing the business and creating $100K earings the next 1-2 years, then growing it more from there ... all while helping people. Consider yourself lucky to get such a rare opportunity with out having to dig into your own pockets to get it started. Instead you'll actually get a paycheck that YOU can increase by doing well!

I believe that the poster was making a comparison between running your own territory at Dynasplint and a franchise. You do not have to purchase your inventory, collatoral materials, and you are provided back office support and a base paycheck. Are you crazy for considering Dynasplint? There are always going to be nay-sayers on boards who didn't do well with the company and are bitter. Ask the Regional Manager at interview time for a sales consultant to talk to, and ask your hard questions. You would probably not be looking here if you didn't like sales, and want to be part of helping people restore theor range of motion and improve their lives. Dynasplint is a good company, and you are not crazy!

Everyone who works for DSI is held to the same standard of performance. The President of Dynasplint has placed key people in whom he trusts and believes will do the right thing in leadership positions. Therefore, if a sales consultant (including a daughter) is not performing in the way that they should, and has given PLENTY of coaching and the opportunity to succeed and still does not improve, then they must be terminated. That is just best business practice.
I respect a company that has morals and standards to not “hand-over” success to someone just because they are a family member. Fairness dictates that that’s the way it must be. Most people look for a company where everyone is treated fairly and favoritism is not based on your last name.
Cleary you have heard gossip, but rumor mills are dangerous as you only hear one side. I couldn’t agree more with Concerned Citizen, that it is a shame that you have such a mission to be nasty and try and destroy someone’s reputation. If you REALLY knew who and what you were talking about you would be appalled by how far from the truth your claims appear.

Actually, there are far more NEGATIVE comments and experiences about Dynasplint than positive. Search Dynasplint and read through them. 95% of the posts portray Dynasplint as a company that does not take care of its employees well - period. DSI does not have a very good compensation/benefits package and is merely a "stepping stone" to a better medical device sales employment opportunity.

Re: Answer # 4. Do check the research but get Joint Active Systems SPS bibliography. Like DSI, EMPI sells dynamic devices and has no research to support efficacy. Most of DSI's recent research is authored by an in-house PhD, not an M.D. and the older stuff consists mostly of case studies i.e no significant patient census, no control, randomization, etc. Both loading techniques (Static Progressive and dynamic) provide results but SPS is documented to work in much less time and has significantly better clinical research backing it up.

Default Re: Dynasplint, Dynasplint, Dynasplint

We have found that the number one competitor to Dynasplint is the lack of knowledge about the splint and the indications of use. There are so many people that say they know Dynasplint but only a small percentage of all therapists and physicians understand all of the indications. That’s why the sales force at Dynasplint is growing- to get the word out to doctors and therapists. The technology of low load prolonged stretch is shown to be the best way to restore range of motion, utilizing the Creep Phenomenon and the Tert principle. The splint is more comfortable and tolerated better by patients because of the LLPS and the patients’ ability to increase or decrease the amount of stretch they feel during their treatment. It is also important to point out that Dynasplint can accommodate the wearing schedule for the patient to make it fit their lifestyle.
We are happy to point out that there are several studies that are not related to Dynasplint that help support this information. Here are two significant studies to check out;
Rehabilitation: Focused exercise aids shoulder hypomobility (Davies and Ellenberger)
and
The use of splints in the treatment of joint stiffness: biologic rationale and an algorithm for making clinical decisions (PW McClure, LG Blackburn, and C Dusold)
Happy reading!

"Stepping stone?" I'll have to DISAGREE! As a current sales consultant of Dynasplint, I am very happy with my chosen career path. I have been working with Dynasplint for three years and have the utmost respect for the company as a whole. In fact, I have recruited my closest friends to come and join Dynasplint, as sales consultants, and they too share my position. "Stepping stone?" Over the past three years I have been able to rapidly achieve the President's Club level. I am more than satisfied with my compensation/benefits package...And my husband is too!

I love the positive spin on everything, sounds like a Northern Div mgrs kool aid. There is a lot to love about Dynasplint like the product, hands on patient care, and feeling good about helping people. But again this is sales and if you are in sales you are here for the money. This is a stepping stone to a bigger and better pay day. They have predetermined packages basesd on how many patients get fit each month. So avg base is 45-70 plus an avg of 8-20 k in tier bonuses. 100k and up is unrealistic. Plus you work like a dog, which is fine, your day flys bye, but you re not compensated coorectly compared to the workload. Plus you will spend over your gas allowance. I guarantee that. Franchise comment is a joke. They can cut your territory at any time, decreasing your earning potential, and hold you to same quotas.

I just read all the comments and I don't recall anyone in this thread saying "Dynasplint has never done anything wrong." No company is perfect, but I have seen the good that this company does first hand. A significant majority of their staff enjoys the work they do, they take ownership of their contributions every day.

As for the management positions . . . I'm sure that there are examples of people attaining those positions through hard work. Hard work and networking are two key components of self-advancement. Very often, the people that move up are those that are both qualified AND connected. This sentiment, "It's not what you know, it's who you know," has been around for a long time, and exists (to some extent) in every workplace.

Sales Consultants at Dynasplint do have about an hour of paperwork an evening depending upon activity. New tablet computers are rolling out in the first quarter of 09, and this will make a huge difference. They make about 8 to 12 calls per day to doctors and therapists, and fewer when they are fitting patients. The territories average about a one hour's drive from the radius of their area, but there are bigger territories out in the country and and tighter ones in the cities. In the end, the top producers work hard. This work is all about what you put into it. Good luck!

Default Help with Dynasplint Trisma Device and corporate contact

My physician ordered me a Trisma splint and told me the sales rep would handle everything and come to my home to fit me. The physician left the country for a month. After almost a month, I was "fitted" with a Dynasplint trisma splint by a local rep today. Unfortunately s/he placed the splint in my mouth and did not have me redo it. She spent less than 10 minutes with me and met me at a non-medical place. I was told that there were full instructions including how to remove the pads for cleaning. She put it in the box and left. When I called to have her return (less than 5 minutes after she had left) to show me how to clean the device, she did not return my call at first, then refused to come back. I now have several questions.

1. Which way do the pads go----less transparent plastic towards the teeth or away from them?
2. How does one remove the pads for cleaning?
3. Are the pads at the back of the mouth or the front (she did not tell me that)
4. Who is in charge of sales staff and customer satisfaction at corporate? I previously left a voice mail for the managing director (I was told he was in charge) and that was not returned.

Thank you. A very disatisfied customer

As an ex-employee, I cant remember the answers to your questions. I used the trismus unit 2 on ENT cancer patients with great success.

I would stop calling the rep. On monday, call the corporate office and speak to the director for that division to get your answers.

You waited a month for the unit, 2 more days wont kill ya!

Thank you anonymous. I am going to call the corporate headquarters, as I suspect that the standard of service I have experienced so far is far from what the company expects from its employees. I copied "Info@dynasplint" on my response as I have so far been unable to find out who overseas the California region. If not I may have to try to reach the head person who I believe is George Haupman.

I may seem a little harsh or angry but trust me I am not the only one that feels this way. So go in with an open mind and make your own oppinion but trust me you will see what I am talking about I will give you 6 month. Oh and one more thing they treat the Minority employees even worse.

Yes the owner is a good man but he is not in all places at all times he has put the wrong people in the wrong positions and has lost a lot of real hard working good honest people that could have benefitted the company, but becuase of the favoratism that is shown for only a few this will continue to happen over and over again and the turn over will continue, you think the money that is put in to the training of these employees that has been lost would have put up a red flag to the owner and say something has to change weather that be a change in management or some training courses need to be implimented. OH another thing if you do work for this company do not ever trust anyone because there are people that are paid and given extremely differant treatment ( by meeting there goals every month and make there bonuses off of others who have busted there buts) why becuase they are paid to snitchon everyone and everything. and after they have received all the info that has been requested from them they are somehow put back into the same catagory as every other employee that is not in the click, just document everything and leep a paper trail of all you accomplishment because trust me they seem to dissapear if they do not want to give you what you deserve after you bust your but for this company and if this happens pelase go directly to the owner with all the documentation he is a good honest man and will listen to you whole heartedly.

I know several people that work at Dynasplint, and I grew up knowing the owner and his family as kind, generous, and caring people. At that time I didn't know that there was even a correlation between them and Dynasplint.

So that's where I'm coming from. Anyone that talks about Dynasplint ownership being greedy or selfish, just doesn't know what they are talking about. Those people should look inside themselves for those characteristics, before they plaster Dynasplint with that kind of unwarranted hyperbole.
You may be correct in thier philanthropic community events but you never worked for the company. It sucks they treat the employees like shit. If they took just .001% of thier community events and directed it toward thier employees they wouldn't have 80% turnover.

Don't be mislead by this post!! They pay you 30-40k base salary with a $450 car allowance and no gas or mileage. They also only give you $125 per month for inservices which doesn't help at all. After the 2000-3000 miles you drive every month fitting patients, marketing and doing follow ups you don't make any money here. Don't be fooled by these posts the positive posts are from the corporate people scanning them and adding thier positive spin on it. Word of caution if it's positive it's a corporate person if it's negative its one of the current or previous employees. Would a company with a turnover of 80% and rep tenure of less than one year be lying...don't think so. You can get hired on and in about a year if you stay that long you would be a senior rep since everyone leaves at that point. It's filled with incompetent managers and a sinking ship. Stay away there are plenty of real companies to work for out there..

In the end, the top producers work hard. This work is all about what you put into it. Good luck!
Here we are almost in Q2 of 2009 and still no tablets. Heck they just started giving out cell phones and it only took them 8 years to do that. This company is so far behind the times they need to sell to someone who can actually run the company correctly with integrity.

And that's a particularly interesting perspective considering that you have once again tried to play yourself off as multiple people by posting multiple negative comments . . . but you haven't quite figured that out yet have you?

Something from one of your previous attacks:

Same thing. Imagine that!

Do not work for this company. Seems like a good company when you visit the website, go through the interview process, and even go to training. The truth is that Dynasplint is a good product to sell. You probably won't complain about the decent salary and car allowance either. But the reality is the company doesn't know how to train sales people and you won't be around for long. If you don't hit your numbers no matter how unrealistic they are you will be gone. There is no sales training if you're not hitting your numbers. If you don't hit they fire you and hire someone else. Put it this way...I went to my first quarterly district/team meeting recently and I realized something when we all went around the table and did introductions. We said our name and how long we had been with the company. Listen to these results. Eleven reps total. 1 rep with the company 7 years, 1 rep for 5 Years, 1 rep for 2 years, 1 rep for 9 months, 4 reps for 6 months, 3 reps for less than 3 months. Eight out of eleven reps have been with the company for less than 9 months. What does that tell you about turnover??? Since that meeting I was let go along with two other reps who weren't hitting their numbers. In the past I have worked in sales and never had a problem hitting numbers, but the numbers Dynasplint expects are unrealistic because they do not properly analyze territory potential (all you current employees know what I am talking about). If you get a high producing territory you may make it as long as the reps at the meeting I went to (anywhere from 2-7 years). I would look for other jobs where you can grow as a professional and/or salesperson. Check Medzilla.com for real jobs. Just trying to help out...

I currently work for Dynasplint and so far I really do enjoy it. One thing people need to remember is that he/she is going to have to work. So many people think they get a sales job and just show up somewhere and sell. You have to educate people on your product, any product you sell, Dynasplint included. Now, the only problem I see thus far is that they only hire from within the company. That usually sounds great if you are looking to join a company... except, often times a great sales rep, is not a great manager. Usually these two jobs require different characteristics, now sometimes it works, but often it doesn't. However, if you understand the product and the principles it was built upon you will realize that it is the best there is.

All things considered thus far things are going well but if you are considering working for Dynasplint you are going to have to work, the orders will not just be handed to you. For many people that is going to be a problem, for others with a good work ethic you shouldn't have a problem. Best of luck to whomever you are.
