The Problem

Lack of Affordability

630,000 Canadians currently go without a wheelchair because they cannot afford the average $2500 cost.

Difficult Process

Purchasing a device is frustrating and time-consuming, taking anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months.

Environmental Impact of Discarded Wheelchairs

In London, over 5,000 devices are thrown out annually - a waste of resources and strain on the environment.

Our Solution

Collect

We accept donations of gently-used mobility devices from individuals and institutions in our community, reducing environmental impact and freeing up valuable space. 

Refurbish

We developed a comprehensive upcycling process in partnership with Goodwill. We clean each device thoroughly, ensure all parts work, and replace the seat and grips so every device is perfect.

Sell & Donate

Devices can be purchased online or over the phone for 20x less than retail pricing. Additionally, passionate community members are able to sponsor a device, which we will donate to an individual in need.
