Ralph Braun needed a solution Spinal Muscular Atrophy was inhibiting his freedom
Ralph’s condition left him unable to walk by the age of 15, and being pushed in a traditional wheelchair and lifted in and out of cars was preventing him from doing what he wanted to do with his life.
He knew he couldn’t be the only one looking for solutions, and he was determined to provide them. He started with the “Tri-wheeler,” the world’s first electric scooter. Next, he developed a series of lifts and steering controls so that nothing would hold him back from seeing the world on his terms.
Today, BraunAbility employs over 1,000 workers, and Ralph’s vision is being sold worldwide as the industry’s top mobility vehicle.
