Independance

"I wanted to build a technology which would give my nephew the independence to manage his own health and develop healthy habits for his future.”

— Kath Hamilton, Founder

 
 

a very personal mission

Loop+ was founded by two sister’s Kath and Clare. It is driven by a very personal mission to the need to improve the health of Clare’s son Evander who was born with a tumour pressing on his spine that left him paralysed. 

Like many wheelchair users, he has no feeling or movement below his waist which means he doesn’t feel pain or discomfort, the body’s natural warning signals to move. This lack of movement creates significant chronic health issues …

At 7 years old he already has scoliosis, been hospitalised numerous times, and has recurring pressure injuries. 

In fact:

one in four wheelchair users develop pressure injuries each year

100% of children developing scoliosis

36% of SCI readmitted to hospital

Many are likely to have bladder and bowel conditions

requiring medical treatment

 
Loop+ was born from our desire to proactively monitor the risks of day to day life in a wheelchair. To give Evander and families like ours the tools and information they need to manage their own health - to create and sustain healthy habits.
