As a great lover of all things outdoors, we couldn’t imagine what it would be like to lose touch with nature and lose the ability to get from A to B on our own. Helping Alf regain his freedom and get back into exercising seemed like a project that was right up our alley. Jeff had been inventing products for decades and tinkering with sports equipment his whole life. In his day job, he designed outdoor sporting products and stand-up paddleboards. On weekends, he gets out on his mountain bike at every opportunity and does all of his own bike maintenance. With that foundation he got down to work designing what would evolve into the very first AJ.
Once we had a prototype built, we were blown away by the reception it received. What started as a one-off passion project led us to an epiphany—there were people of all ages, all over the world, who could benefit from an AJ. Witnessing the impact it’s made not only on people’s physical health, but their mental health, was enough motivation to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to building more AJs. Partnering together, we hope to help anyone facing a mobility challenge to get moving again.
