Coyote company history
Who is Coyote
Our mission is to provide the function, comfort and outcomes we would expect for ourselves and our families through exceptional devices, technique, products, and service.
Who Is Coyote Design?
Out of the need for better products in their own patient care, Dale Perkins, CPO, and son Matt Perkins founded Coyote Design in 1999. They continue to work closely with orthotic and prosthetic wearers, clinicians, and technicians to provide products, methods, and designs that will continue to improve the field of orthotics and prosthetics. Both Matt and Dale are amputees themselves, making their passion very personal. In 2012 Coyote Design was awarded the Blue Ribbon by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as a Dream Big Small Business of the Year.
