About Us

Our Story

  • 1993 - The beginning

    Thesis Technology Products Ltd. is a family business founded in 1993 by a group of engineering, technical and finance professionals who left their jobs in the electronics and computer industry in the south of England to start the new company.

  • 1994 - LimbO is launched

    The LimbO was first launched onto the UK market in early 1994. Initially a basic range of adult arm and leg models were introduced. The range quickly expanded to include child models and a broader range of adult sizes to accommodate a wider range of patients.

  • 2000 - LimbO goes international

    From 2000, Thesis Technology began to export LimbOs around the world, to large distributors and re-sellers in countries such as USA; Australia; Germany; Japan; Switzerland; Italy; the Netherlands.

  • 2005 - LimbO online

    In 2005 Thesis Technology Products Ltd developed their first retail website, offering customers another channel (in addition to phone or post) from which to order products.

  • 2006 - NHS approval

    In early 2006 several LimbO below knee models were approved by the NHS Business Services Authority Drug Tariff & Rules Team to be placed on the Drug Tariff Part IX. and, as such, became available on FP10 prescription.

As a family business, we strongly believe that company values cannot be enforced and must have the buy in of our entire team. Our values are determined by the whole company and we regularly review them to ensure we continue to embody them in everything we do.
