It All Started with a Camping Trip - Our Story
Our young company history begins with a camping trip by Ladd Lougee, co-founder of Strongback Mobility AG. Here Ladd experiences something that millions of campers in this country are familiar with: the camping chair is not really comfortable, and after a few hours of sitting there is pain in the back and neck.
His idea: to develop a new, comfortable camping chair that differentiates itself from conventional models. Said and done! The innovative camp chair, Strongback Chair was launched on the US market in 2010. But the story doesn't end there.
Ladd Lougee has noticed over the years that users of standard wheelchairs adopt a similar unhealthy posture as users of low-quality camping chairs. The idea was born to change this in the long term. Two years and several prototypes later, Ladd and co-founder Dr. Christian Grothe developed the first ergonomic STRONGBACK wheelchair.
Awarded - Prizes and Awards for Our Design
The company's revolutionary approach to design meant that STRONGBACK products received the notable German Design Award in both 2018 and 2020. This is the most prestigious award for product design in the world and is widely respected in both North America and the rest of Europe. In both cases, the prize jury praised the user-friendliness and innovation in our products.

What Makes Strongback Mobility USA Stand Out?
Of the many key features that make both the wheelchairs and transport chairs designs from Strongback Mobility so exemplary, it is the technology of the frame-integrated spine support system that makes such a noticeable difference to users. The design and the durability of the frame-integrated effective posture support not only allows for greater comfort but also means that such comfort will continue to be enjoyed long after the product has first been used.
In addition to the integrated posture support, which allows for a more ergonomic sitting position, the lightweight wheelchairs now available also impress thanks to their novel and contemporary designs. When you are sitting in a STRONGBACK chair, you don't just feel more comfortable but you look more comfortable, too. Indeed, the design aesthetic has been deliberately chosen to create a differential between our chairs and those of other brands. In short, this means that the design style of Strongback Mobility's foldable wheelchairs is more reminiscent of a bicycle or another piece of sporting equipment than a medical aid.
