Who We Are
Klarity Medical Products manufactures and distributes a variety of products serving the needs of radiation therapists, occupational therapists, hand therapists, and other medical specialists. With facilities in China, USA, and Europe, Klarity is a world leader in manufacturing and developing thermoplastics and positioning devices. All items are produced with strict ISO 13485 certification and in compliance with all FDA, CE and other international regulations.
Our technical expertise dates back to the 1960's, when Dr. Lester M. Larson served as a research chemist at the Dupont Company in Wilmington, Delaware. While there, he created the world's first thermoplastic splints in collaboration with Occupational Therapist Dorothy Kester, O.T.R. Dr. Larson refined and published this work at the US National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland in 1967.
Dr. Larson authored 10 US and Canadian patents regarding splinting materials and initiated the development of Prenyl™ and Orthoplast™, the world's first commercially successful thermoplastic splinting materials. His work provided the foundation for all of today's low-temperature thermoplastic splinting materials.
Dr. Larson and his son, Peter Larson, founded Larson Medical Products in 1989, in Columbus, Ohio. During the 1990’s the company expanded to producing a variety of precision medical thermoplastics.
In 1999 Larson Medical Products began a collaboration with Dr. Deren Zhan of Guangzhou, China. This partnership brought modern medical thermoplastics to China through the founding of Klarity Medical and Equipment Company, which has become China's leading manufacturer of medical thermoplastics and related patient stabilization devices, and in 2010, Larson Medical Products evolved into Klarity Medical Products.
Today, Klarity is a world leader in manufacturing and developing thermoplastics and positioning devices for radiation therapy, rehabilitation and occupational therapy, orthopedics, and other specialties.
The name Klarity® symbolizes our dedication to technological advancement and excellence. We are committed to serving the world with the highest quality medical thermoplastics and positioning devices, honoring our shared goal of improving patient care.
