Aligned as Designed Patents and Trademarks
Turning injury into innovation after a devastating car crash
Linda began creating her inventions using her background in human biomechanics after a life altering car accident. She started by visualizing how to align a disabled body in a way that would maintain the body's natural alignment and create ability from disability by allowing the body to move the way it was designed to move while using assistive devices.
The Aligned as Designed CANE has an angled shaft, offset handle and an offset ridged foot that has the same proportions as the foot. This unique design allows the cane’s foot to act as a third and distribute the body’s weight from heel to toe between the cane foot and the user's feet while maintaining body’s natural alignment upright posture, balance and stability.
The Aligned as Designed CRUTCH feet maintain the body's weight from heel to toe while keeping the head upright and the arms close to the body.
Our WALKER/ROLLATOR is designed to maintain the head over the shoulders and the shoulders over the hips and the arms close to the body helping maintain upright posture and a more stable natural walking gait. It can be pushed by one hand or two.
“Being limited in mobility is difficult and painful. I walk normally today and without a cane because of the cane that I invented, patented and used that allowed me to regain an upright stable walking gait
In 2018, Linda founded Aligned as Designed, LLC to help bring her Patented inventions to others who require mobility assistance.
In January and February of 2019, Linda received her first two utility patents, and in April 2020 she received her first design patent on her Cane and Crutch foot. Her Walker/Rollator patent was issued on November 12, 2019, and her Crutch utility patent was allowed on February 9th, 2021. Her China Cane Patent was granted on 2022 09 02. She has more patents being issued and pending in the United states and abroad and additional improved mobility devices and apps being developed.
