aids for independent living
Inventions that make life easier and more independent
Inventions that help
People with disabilities and an aging population
We all know people who are more “capable” of performing tasks when they have the right tools, like glasses, canes and hearing aids. People with disabilities, due to illness, age or injury, face their own difficulties with day-to-day activities and need specific inventions to enhance their mobility, safety, independence and productivity.
KPC invents assistive devices that could allow elderly couples to live at home more independently, a paraplegic to transfer safely from a wheelchair or an amputee to make a pizza or cut a steak with one hand. KPC has built and tested prototypes for its patent-pending designs. Our designs were conceived and developed based on feedback from people with various disabilities, health care professionals and manufacturers to ensure that the aids will be beneficial, easy to use and affordable. In short, KPC inventions are designed to help Keep People Capable.
Basic needs, growing demand
Whether you manufacture wheelchairs, wheelchair seats, kitchen tools or ladders, we have inventions that will spark your interest and imagination. Our patent pending designs were conceived to ensure both efficient production for the manufacturer and ease of use for the end users.
KPC’s target market is growing rapidly. Presently, in just the USA, Canada and Western Europe, more than 100 million are afflicted with a disability. That number is expected to skyrocket. For example, baby boomers‐-who in the United States alone are estimated at 73 million– will all be over 65 by 2030. Similarly, Canada’s senior population is expected to grow by 68% over the next 20 years. And almost half (47%) of those aged 75 years and over will develop a disability.
For both ethical and economic reasons, societies need to ensure that those with disabilities can live as safely, independently and productively as possible. To do so, they need the right tools. The devastation to vulnerable communities caused by the current pandemic underscores this need. KPC inventions can help. There are no other assistive devices on the market like ours.
