About Us | The History Behind Our Chiropractic Tables
Nearly 20 years ago, Dr. Rene St. Cyr was a student at Western States Chiropractic College (Now called the University Of Western States) in Portland, Oregon. During his first term, he decided to buy a portable table. As he looked at the tables available, he was discouraged by the designs, prices, and quality. In 1994, while still in school, Dr St. Cyr decided to develop his own line of portable chiropractic tables. He emphasized hand crafted ergonomic design, functionality, and affordable pricing. Lifetimer was born at test
Lifetimer’s reputation quickly grew as students and professionals began to appreciate the quality of hand crafted Lifetimer portable chiropractic tables. Lifetimer portable table sales spread quickly across North America and Europe. In response to the growing demand for elevation chiropractic and massage tables and related equipment, Lifetimer later began developing tables for that market as well.
With baby boomers aging, they were seeing more sports injuries related to soft tissues and an increased prevalence for physical rehabilitation. They were challenged to design and manufacture a special table to accommodate these needs. After nearly five years in product development and testing, the computer automated LT- Flexion Distraction Table was born. It provides automated, and hands free, treatment possibilities in both the chiropractic and physical therapy health fields.
Lifetimer International is now a dynamic design and production company. They are always looking for ways to improve existing products and develop new ones to meet the growing global need for highly functional, well-built, and affordable chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, massage, and medical equipment. To this day they continue to build all their tables by hand, realizing that just as there is no substitution for the skill of the Chiropractors hand there is no substitution for hand-built quality.
