Posey was founded in 1937, when the built a bed cradle for a hospitalized friend who complained about the weight of the bedcovers on his feet. The hospital liked the idea, and asked for a price for 12 bed cradles. The Posey Company landed its first order, and made a profit of $12. As John Posey showed the bed cradles to other hospitals in the San Francisco area, he was asked to develop other products to assist in patient care. Soon, he expanded his travels beyond San Francisco, and after many years, John built a company with a worldwide reputation for innovative and practical healthcare products.
