1972 The Healthcare Pathway
In 1972, Jeff Baker picked the path of healthcare because he knew he could build better products that enhanced efficiency, improved positive patient outcomes and enhanced overall experience for health care professionals and their patients.
1998 Experience Expansion
Twenty-six years later, Jeff had revolutionized the health care industry as Vice President of DMI & PDM. In 1998, Jeff planned to set sail for retirement, but his customers begged him to build a better chair.
1999 Birth of MTI
Armed with 26 years of design & manufacturing experience, Jeff and Dee began to forge a suite of specialized exam and procedure equipment. Shortly thereafter, MTI gave birth to the first universally powered DC chair line for ultra-quiet, smooth, strong, and reliable operation.
2005 MTI Expansion
MTI has expanded its operations to a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, that produces superior quality & reliable products….ALL MADE IN THE USA. Products are shipped across the world to Podiatrists, Wound Care Specialists, Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons, Ophthalmologists, Otolaryngologists and Oral Surgeons across the world.
2011 Building Bariatric
MTI expanded it's product line to the bariatric and wound care market. The 527W and 450W chairs offered a DC powered 800 pound lift, 30" seats and mobile bases. This allowed wound care physicians and nurses to easily transport their patients, reduce injuries and improve their patient care. We also invented the patented Leg Wrap Support, which offered a heel and calf support to wrap the heel, calf and leg for wound dressings.

Why has MTI placed a Proposition 65 warning in its product manuals?
Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act is a California law passed by direct voter initiative in 1986. Proposition 65 is intended to help Californians make informed decisions about protecting themselves from exposure to chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm. Proposition 65 requires the State to publish a list of these chemicals which now includes over 800 substances. The list, which must be updated annually, includes a wide variety of substances, such as dyes, solvents, drugs, food-additives, and by-products of certain processes. The list includes consumer products such as aspirin, essential nutrients such as selenium and vitamin A, and materials such as nickel, sawdust, and vinyl that can be found in many everyday items.
Businesses must provide a warning if any of the listed chemicals are present in their products unless they can demonstrate that the exposure does not exceed the “no significant risk level” requirement of Proposition 65.
Businesses post Proposition 65 warnings because they have either determined that chemicals present in their products would exceed the “no significant risk level”, or because they have chosen to provide a warning solely because of the presence of listed chemicals in the product without attempting to evaluate the exposure levels. Performing a risk assessment to evaluate whether a warning would be required would be beyond the resources available to most companies. MTI has elected to provide the warnings because it is aware that one or more of the listed chemicals may be present but has not performed the extensive studies that would be required to assess the exposure level. Although MTI’s products may pose a negligible exposure risk, we decided it would be prudent to provide the Proposition 65 warnings.
