The Meyland-Smith Company was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1901 by George Meyland-Smith. He was originally trained as a blacksmith and his early work focused on the building of bicycles and bicycle accessories. He later turned to the production and repair of hospital equipment. In 1940, George’s son Henry Meyland-Smith began to work for the company and eventually took ownership when his father passed away in 1951. In the years that followed many different products were manufactured, even the development of motorized bicycles and mopeds. In 1971, Allan Nissen took over the business and began to focus on the production of walkers/gait trainers. In the summer of 2011 Meyland-Smith was bought by Palle Lind Jensen and Jan Sahlertz. The company currently consists of efficient production and administration departments that provide for daily operation and ongoing development of their products which are shipped worldwide.
