For over 90 years, Zimmer Biomet has been a driving force in the rapidly growing musculoskeletal healthcare industry.
Mr. Zimmer, with fellow salesman J.J. Ettinger, decided to quit their jobs and form the Zimmer Manufacturing Company.
Zimmer introduces the fracture bed, which uses an ingenious system of canvas straps to support the patient while the mattress is lowered to change sheets or bedpans.
Zimmer patents a folding litter and cast cutter. The litter is used extensively during World War II
Zimmer markets its first hip prosthesis, developed in association with Dr. Palmer Eicher.
Zimmer becomes the first company to successfully mold polyethylene into a viable product. Hip cups from the material are introduced and Zimmer markets its first metal-plastic total knee prosthesis.
