In 1994, Todd Brown was injured in a motocross accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. In an instant, his whole world changed forever. Once he left the rehabilitation facility and transitioned back to living at home, Todd faced all kinds of new challenges and problems he’d never encountered before. Adjusting to the reality of life in a wheelchair was difficult. On top of that, he had difficulty finding a good medical supplies company that offered great service and understanding for people who were in situations like his own. A few years later, he created a company with the purpose of providing the best customer service and top-quality products that could help to improve others’ quality of life.
Since Todd has first-hand experience with understanding the financial challenges and burdens that those with specific medical conditions can face, he wanted to give young adults with these issues a chance to achieve their dreams, just like he has done in creating his own company.
