AFARI – Restoring Mobility and Confidence

Mobility Technologies chose Alexanders to be a manufacturing partner for the AFARI, a revolutionary medical device that restores mobility for the chronically ill, those rehabilitating from injury, and the aging population.  The relationship began in 2015 during the design phase, an area of expertise for Alexanders.  The company’s role, spanning several generations of prototypes, has included a new folding concept for easy transport and storage, as well as a steering concept that is more functional and comfortable than the original design.  The hands-on manufacturing at Alexanders has involved CNC machining, steel tube rolling and welding, powder coating, and the assembly of components. With the evolution of the market-ready final design, Alexanders has transitioned to machining and fabricating fixtures for the efficient manufacture of multiple frames.
