This project was born after a traumatic experience of one of its founders, Rafael Vidal...
This engineer from Madrid was one of the few survivors of the serious air accident of Spanair (Madrid-2008). After multiple operations, and during his long convalescence, he detected that there was a social need to solve.
"I left the hospital with many fractures that finally healed, but I had one in the tibia that did not close. I couldn't understand how someone who has to carry crutches for a while or for the rest of their life had to endure this nightmare. After several weeks of reflection, I deduced that it was important to try to improve the existing products on the market. All the products that contribute to improving our quality of life.
The idea was to solve several problems for hundreds of thousands of users of crutches, canes, walkers, etc., all over the world. From those who have to use them for a limited time, or for those for whom these mobility aids are part of their daily life, using them for an indefinitely prolonged time...
"The experience helped me to think about improving people's lives. Whether to walk, see or hear, I realized that in all these fields there is room for improvement to make a better world," says the Spanish engineer.
Today we are a company based in Madrid (Spain), founded in 2011, by a team of engineers specializing in bioengineering and medical devices with extensive experience in the field of medicine and aerospace industry. Vidal then found two partners for this project: Physicist Miguel Cappiello and Surgeon Aleksandar Lovic.
We develop products that really help improve health. Functional, comfortable and ergonomic at the same time.
Products designed with the environment at heart: replace only the parts to be changed reducing the environmental impact.
INDESmed takes care of aesthetics by designing its products with accuracy and elegance.
