As a developer of lightweight wheelchairs and transfer chairs, Strongback Mobility has a less-typical story. Founder Ladd Lougee was using a camping chair, only to find that prolonged sitting led to back and neck pain. Lougee's first solution was a camping chair designed to improve comfort, support and the user's posture, and he later adapted these features to the design of a wheelchair, working in conjunction with Dr. Christian Grothe. Together, they launched what would be the first Strongback wheelchair, an ergonomic design that has since won awards for its innovative, user-friendly features.
