Facilitating Better Outcomes for your Patients since 1989.


Synaptic Design was started in 1989 in Melbourne, Australia by Dr Brian Sherwood B. App. Sc. (Chiropractic) Brian graduated from the RMIT University School of Chiropractic (formerly Phillip Institute) in 1988.


The greatest difficulty Dr Sherwood faced when he first started practice was answering the question, "What's wrong with my back?". The spine is a very complex structure  and communicating the diagnosis and prognosis in layman's terms can be difficult for a new graduate.


Dr Sherwood had an idea of designing and manufacturing an anatomical spinal model that shows 'what can go wrong with a patients back'. That's how the first model Demere 1 was born. (Demere is Latin for 'to demonstrate'.)


Since 1989, Synaptic Design have been manufacturing innovative spinal models and T-Bars and distributing products such as the Chiroflow water-based pillow and Multi-Radiance Cold Lasers.
