BML Basic Physician's Supply, Inc. was started in 1968 by William Johns, a chiropractor, and his wife Martha. Dr. Johns made orthotics devices for his patients and soon other doctors were requesting Dr Johns make them for their patients. Before long BML (Basic Mold Labs) was born to supply the demand. As time went on their customers asked for more and more physician-related supplies and so the business expanded to become BML Basic Physician's Supply, Inc. Today BML is still a family-owned small business being owned and operated by Martha Johns' daughter and grandson. Miss Martha started making our PVC based lifts over 40 years ago in her kitchen oven. Today the oven is bigger and out of the house, but our lifts are still manufactured at the same homestead in Paragould, AR where they've been made since the 70's. There are many companies and physicians selling our lifts. There are even some blatant copies being sold under other names. But we are the USA-based manufacturers of BML lifts and have been for over 40 years.
