"I grew up seeing my dad on and off crutches due to multiple knee surgeries. I always knew the old civil war era design needed to change, and I've been dreaming up ways to make it better for years. After he became an AK amputee (above the knee) he became a permanent user, and I knew I had to do it, it became my mission to create something better for him, something that would truly improve his everyday life."
-Max Younger, Designer of the M+D Crutch and Co-founder of Mobility Designed
Together, Max and Liliana Younger, founded Mobility Designed to redefine mobility. At Mobility Designed we believe the status quo is not good enough. We believe you can have a better quality of life through improved mobility, and our mission is to create mobility devices that provide a painless experience and are made to fit you.
