Ortotec Finland

Ortotec Finland, formerly known as Jyväskylän Ortotekniikka Oy was founded now 20 years ago. The sole purpose of the business has been to produce and sell GetMet, which is a metal detector designed for detecting metal parts in tissue. GetMet Mark I was developed now 20 years ago and the company was able to sell over 50 devices to Finnish hospitals. At this point, international sales were not an option due to restrictions within the corporation.

GetMet was created to detect metal pieces in the human body, such as screws, bolts, and metal plates, which are commonly used to treat fractures. Often as the bone heals following surgery, the used metal parts would be removed, sometimes years after the operation. The human body forms strong scar tissue around metal, making it difficult to detect metal pieces after months or years.  Read More
