MONTREAL, Feb. 5, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Jacinte Bleau, President and CEO of Médicus Orthopedic Laboratory, is proud to announce the launch of Quebec's first on-line orthopaedic center.

Quebec's population is now able to book appointments with the orthopaedic laboratory, for any given service, via internet, by logging onto the www.monmedicus.ca system.  Medicus' clients can, as well, access their personal files thereby optimizing their time management.  To begin with, internet users create a user account and, after a minimal delay for verification purposes, they can access the site, book appointments by themselves, and consult their personal file; all this done directly on-line and without the wait.

Thus, with its never-ending quest for the latest in technology, Médicus meets the needs of its clients, family caregivers, support workers and healthcare professionals who were seeking access, at all times, to certain services provided by the Laboratory. This entire notion proves, once again, that both the company and its owner are forerunners when it comes to understanding the needs of the population in 2013.

As leader in the orthotics/prosthetics domain, Médicus has over 300,000 client files in its database and therefore anticipates that a high percentage of these clients will be taking advantage of this on-line privilege.

About Médicus
The Médicus Orthopedic Laboratory has now entered its 55th year of business.  The vision of its founder, Jean Claude Bleau and that of his daughter and actual CEO, Jacinte, are what makes the company what it is today; an arborescence with 13 branch locations, over 55 external clinics, a central workshop and a Research & Development Department.  The latter, under the supervision of Jacinte Bleau, is one of the undeniable strengths behind the company.  Research done here is dedicated mainly to the study of biomechanics movement, prevention and treatment of work or sport related injuries and the innovation of materials used in biomechanics and orthotics fabrication.  The Cirque du Soleil, Costco, Canada Post and Hydro Québec, only to name a few, have profited from the developments and methods used in our custom-made products.  These past few years have seen several prestigious awards from the Québec business community testifying to the company's capacity for growth and its endurance throughout the years.
