BTE was founded in 1979 as Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment – by three business partners – a world-famous orthopedic surgeon, an entrepreneur, and an engineer/inventor who had over 25 patents and founded Baltimore Air Coil, one of the largest industrial HVAC manufacturing companies in the world.

BTE has innovation and product development at its core. We innovated and built on the initial 1979 design to provide the most functional, dynamic evaluation and testing solution for occupational therapists. Expanding into the marketplace, providing an unparalleled upper and lower extremity functional task simulation evaluation and measurement system - the Work Simulator.
Buoyed by the runaway success of the Work Simulator - a revolutionary, functional task simulation device for therapists, we continued to innovate. Enhancing its capabilities - but also - designing a more robust, engaging product - BTE Primus. A more robust, fully featured system, equipped for both occupational and physical therapy. Meanwhile, Hanoun Medical, headquartered in Canada, began on the path of creating precise evaluation systems designed to aid employers in performing pre and post hire job demands testing.
Baltimore Therapeutic Equimpent and Hanoun Medical’s simultaneous innovation and penetration of the therapeutic and workforce testing spaces worldwide began to make a partnership nearly inevitable. So in 2004, Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment merged with Hanoun Medical - to create BTE Technologies, Inc. A dynamic integration of testing and rehabilitation technology and experience. This combined clinical expertise, technological innovation, and operational strengths paved the way for a new dimension of function-based assessment and rehabilitation. Unrivaled to this day worldwide.
Today, BTE produces a full product line of offerings, addressing different therapeutic and evaluative needs. Our equipment provides clinics worldwide with the most functional and objective systems. Our interactive software engages patients and provides actionable data for clinical decision-making. We are your partner for patient care and clinic success.
