This young engineer from Madrid was one of the few survivors of the serious Spanair plane crash (Madrid-2008). After multiple (16) operations, and during his long convalescence, he detected that there was a social need to be urgently resolved.
"I left the hospital with many fractures that finally healed, but I had one in my tibia that wouldn't close. I couldn't understand how someone who has to carry crutches for a time or for the rest of their life, had to endure this nightmare. Afterwards After several weeks of reflection, I deduced that it was important to try to improve the existing products on the market. All products or aids that contribute to improving our quality of life.
It was about solving several problems for hundreds of thousands of users of crutches, canes, walkers, etc., around 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 long time...
Today Rafael Vidal lives a totally normal life. "The experience helped me think about improving people's lives. Whether it was walking, seeing or hearing, I realized that in all these fields there is room for improvement to make a better world," says this talented Spanish engineer.
Today we are a company based in Madrid (Spain), founded in 2011, by a team of engineers specialized in bioengineering and medical devices, with extensive experience in the field of medicine and the aerospace industry. Vidal then found people who fit perfectly into this project, such as Surgeon Aleksandar Lovic (whom he met at the La Paz Hospital). INDESmed had started to walk. He began to walk from his tragic experience towards the Common Good.
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.
