Sheldon Langer, DPM and Justin Wernick, DPM began educating their colleagues about
the latest advances in lower extremity biomechanics in the late 1960’s. Their goals
were simple; help to improve their colleagues achieve better patient outcomes with
new science and the products that flowed from it. From these humble beginnings emerged
Langer Biomechanics in 1971 and an entire industry in the years to come.
Today, Langer Biomechanics, Inc. designs, manufactures and distributes a broad range
of medical products for the treatment of lower extremity ailments. We sell our products
to qualified healthcare practitioners who are involved in the treatment of patients
suffering from lower extremity ailments. Our primary market is North America, however
there are distributors in Europe, Asia and Australia as well.
Our broad range of orthopedic products, including custom foot and ankle orthotic
devices, pre-fabricated foot products, footwear, rehabilitation products, and orthopedic
materials are designed to correct, protect, heal and provide comfort for the patient.
The core principals established in 1971 of Education, Innovation and Quality remain
firmly intact today.
