Walking aids are nowadays better.
I'm Rafael Vidal, founder of INDESmed. What if I tell you nothing is impossible?
In 2008 I was in a plane trying to take off from Madrid airport. The plane crashed, leaving more than 200 dead. I was one of the 18 seriously injured survivors.
After 16 surgical operations, doctors decided to cut off the leg that had not yet healed. I refused and started to fight against standard medical procedures that had no cure for my case.
Due to my physical condition, I was fired from the company where I worked as a medical engineer.
In the basement of my home, I gathered a group of engineers who we used to work together and started designing the lightest, height adjustable, absolutely silent when walking, not causing hand pain forearm crutches in the world: INDESmed carbon fiber crutches can load up to 440lb with only 0.5lb weight.
In 2015, I found Dr. Aleksandar Lovic, a plastic surgeon who uses really innovative surgery techniques. He saved my leg and today I can run again.
To help people recover better and faster from injuries and post-operative and rehabilitation processes we continued designing crutches, canes and walkers.
To improve the quality of life of short and long term disabled people, our portfolio includes today WALKING, REHABILITATION, VISION and HEARING AIDS.
Our team designs, manufactures and certifies his own products under CE and FDA medical devices standards.
