Meet the Team
Mitch is the founder of ExoPlus Solutions and Able Bionics Foundation.
He is the pioneer of exosekeleton use for theurapetic use.
“After a spinal cord injury left me quadriplegic, I could have benefited from being able to crawl again. There were no technologies to help me crawl again, only walk. And crawling on my own on mats only ended up with me getting severe skin wounds afterwards. I created ExoPlus Solutions and designed the ExoPlus Move to be the solution me and many others have been waiting for.”
