Our Story

A painful patient experience repeated over and over again….

“I got injured and needed surgery. My doctor and physical therapist were great. The treatment center was modern and high-tech. Then…they gave me crutches that looked out of the stone ages. Ugly, uncomfortable, unstable—this was how I was supposed to live my life until I got better?" - New Patients

Dynamo’s founder felt this disconnect himself, after eleven knee surgeries and more than 1000 days grappling with these same outdated crutches, canes and walkers.

Doctors and physical therapists have complained for decades about the lack of modern mobility devices available to medical professionals. They’ve dreamed of intuitive, 21st century devices that enable their patients to live a safer, fuller, more dignified life, while recovering.

Dynamo accepted the challenge.

Our first step towards creating better, science-based solutions was to gather input from patients, doctors and physical therapists. Dynamo created mobility devices that are great looking, very comfortable and better for patient recovery.

Dynamos are the missing link, a dynamic leap forward in how modern mobility devices should look, feel and perform. In fact, our initial improvement on the common crutch is so different, we had to give the product its own name—SportSwings™.

Sports medicine professionals are already touting SportSwings as “better than crutches” for recovery. But they’re even more than that.

Dynamos are a bold reflection of a continuous commitment to make it “almost” cool to be on medical devices.
The biggest change in crutches over about the last 100 years was the switch from wooden crutches to aluminum. Sport Swings are so different & such an improvement we don’t even call them crutches. They’re designed to be more stable, more comfortable, and to more closely mimic normal gait.
Dr. Charles Mehlman
The smooth foot/shaft articulation or ankle in the swings allows for a more normal gait without loss of momentum or a long recovery phase that is seen with crutches. This allows patients to conserve energy for the long walks. My college students hurrying around campus love it.
Dr. Matthew Langenderfer
