  • What is the story behind the SideGlider?
    15 years ago, one of the partners of Innovative Assistive Devices (IAD) was left with impaired mobility, balance and coordination after brain tumor surgery. She felt very frustrated as a cane couldn’t help her with balance problems, and a walker seemed big and unwieldy. The medical assistive devices commonly used seemed clunky and undesirable. So she partnered with her husband and her father to form IAD and designed, patented, and built the SideGlider.
