ABOUT US

As a physiotherapist working in a hospital, picking up a fallen walking aid was an everyday occurrence. Not only was it time-consuming, but I also witnessed numerous 'near misses' and 'close calls' from patients attempting to retrieve their walking aids from the ground. One day, coming home from work, I placed my mobile phone on my hands-free magnetic car mount, and it dawned on me: why does this not exist for walking aids? That moment sparked the idea, and the rest is history.
