Aligned as Designed Patents and Trademarks
Turning injury into innovation after a devastating car crash
Linda began creating inventions by visualizing how to align a disabled body in a way that would create ability from disability while using assistive devices. The Aligned as Designed CANE has an angled shaft, offset handle and a large, offset ridged foot. This unique design allows the cane’s foot to act as a third foot to distribute the body’s weight and encourages the body’s natural alignment by engaging the core muscles necessary for upright posture, balance and stability. The Aligned as Designed CRUTCHES keep the arms close to the body and the weight of the body is carried by the crutch feet and handles – not the underarms. Our WALKER/ROLLATOR maintains upright posture and can be pushed by one hand or two.
“Being limited in mobility is difficult and painful. I walk normally today and have regained physical ability from my physical disability because of the cane that I invented, patented and used.” - Linda
In 2018, Linda founded Aligned as Designed, LLC to help bring her knowledge, discoveries and 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. She has more patents being issued and pending in the United states and abroad and additional improved mobility items being developed.
