Founded in 2002 as “Action Chairs” and located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Mobility Sports designs, builds and distributes hand crafted adapted sports equipment. Our primary focus is sled hockey equipment and sled hockey sticks, but we have built a few custom chairs as well.
As the father of an adult son with Spina Bifida, I founded Action Chairs with the idea that there had to be more to a wheelchair than just four tires and a seat. With this in mind, I set out to design and develop a wheelchair that defied conventional wisdom and truly showed that innovation could be had in the wheelchair industry. From this idea, the patented AC-1 was born. Unlike other suspension chairs that provide cushion for the rider, the AC-1 was designed to not only provide cushion for the rider, by isolating the seating system from the wheels, but to make the chair push easier; after all isn’t that what every manual wheelchair user desires? The AC-1 could be described as an “Urban Chair” designed to flex and roll over small obstacles like sidewalk cracks, the gravel in your driveway, or the threshold of your doorway.
In 2006 we officially changed our name to Mobility Sports. As we have continued to grow as a company, the name Mobility Sports seemed to be a more fitting name.
We hope you check back often as we intend to continue to improve our products, based on the needs of our customers.
Sincerely, Randal J Kwapis
