Our mission

We believe that aesthetics are essential to feeling like a whole person. That is why we design and produce beautiful, functional and durable crutches, canes and other aids. Our goal is to set people with disabilities free from prejudice and limitations. Both own and others'.

Our aids are a direct extension of the Danish design tradition when it comes to clean lines, quality, comfort and materials. Our crutches are designed and handcrafted in navy oak, grain leather, aluminium, carbon fiber and ash wood.

But even though we pay tribute to the traditions, we are also proud to break notions, barriers and custom when it comes to aesthetics within aids.

Read the story


Over the past 7 years, our founder, Kristoffer, has fought to change the perception of how we see disability.

Kristoffer believes that you should not see yourself as disabled, but rather that you have a disability.

A big difference that over the years has changed many people's lives for the better.

Today, we work based on the same philosophy, namely to create aids that are an extension of the user - not just a tool.
