Mobi, LLC. Creator of the crutch-alternative, Mobilegs, was the recipient of the New Technology Showcase Winner at LifeScience Alley’s 2012 Conference last month at the Minneapolis Convention Center. As an award winner, Mobi was part of 10 organizations chosen to highlight the Conference’s focus on new key drivers shaping the health industry by exhibiting cutting-edge technologies and products. More than 1,600 life science leaders attended.

The New Technology Showcase, sponsored by Mayo Clinic, provided an opportunity for companies around the world to apply for the opportunity to exhibit innovative medical device, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and health care delivery products.

“We were honored to be alongside the many great products that are redefining the health industry,” said John White CEO of Mobilegs. “In the end, we are about making something that changes people’s lives for the better and to have been among others with the same mission will be truly inspiring.”

Mobilegs are designed to improve on traditional crutches to provide greater stability, reduce secondary injuries, conserve physical energy and improve the recovery experience. Ultimately, they aim to completely transform the world of assisted mobility. From top to bottom, each feature of the traditional crutch has been remodeled for optimum agility.
