A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Because we hit our goal so quickly, we are GUARANTEEING Delivery of the MOBO PRIMO in January 2018!
The MOBO System is your Swiss army knife for pain relief, massage, mobility, muscle recovery, and therapy. Designed by a professional physical therapist to target and relieve pain in all parts of the body.
Daily, we overwork and under support our bodies.
Muscle and Joint Pain starts with poor posture, sports injury, commuting, working, gaming and even while sleeping. Our bodies are constantly under stress and tension creating compromising positions which leads to severe body pain. We want to help people be free from aches and pain. That's why we created MOBO!
We spend way too much time sitting at work, staring at our phones, and driving. Even exercising, playing sports causes aches and soreness.
All this stress and tension results in headaches, neck, back and foot pain.
MOBO targets a wide range of pain and dysfunction through simple transformations.
The MOBO System is compact, lightweight, easy to use and extremely versatile.
The problem we discovered was that all the products for mobility and therapy are either a single pressure or a single texture. But, there is no 'one size fits all' in mobility and therapy.
MOBO provides 40+ therapy tools to relieve your muscle and joint pain.
MOBO SYSTEM Components are designed to work together in a variety of configurations.
MOBO ULTIMO contains the equivalent of 40+ concurrent products, each with multiple iterations. Exchanging Pressure Bands, End Caps, Connectors, Ball Locations and Distances, Rolling Out the Mat, etc. allow you to modify MOBO and quickly target your particular needs.
Like priming a pump, mobility training primes the body, making it as adaptable as possible for the hard work, intense training or active play that you will put it through. MOBO provides a system of tools that prime your system, preparing you for whatever challenges lie before you. In order to undo the physical stress of working, training, and playing, we have created a series of videos.
CP will explain the how's and why's of mobility and show you how MOBO can improve performance and decrease pain. These are just a few of the many videos that have been produced for MOBO. Additional videos will also be produced in the future.
Both CP and Cosmo have dealt with injuries from sports (soccer and ultimate frisbee, respectively) and accidents and use MOBO to help assist them with increasing their mobility in those tender places. CP has used both her personal experience, as well as, her 13 years of clinical experience, to create top-notch education for MOBO, so that anyone can use MOBO and get the results they are seeking.
Cosmo has nearly 20 years of experience designing innovative products, sourcing materials, working with manufacturers, project management, marketing, and fulfillment. Cosmo's experience in all these areas allows him to produce the best possible product, with the best materials, and get it to you on time.
Each part can be used to address dozens of different issues!
Just read it for yourself.

Wood is an organic, warm, sensual material that beckons the mind toward earthy massage and restoration. Each Ball is constructed with the highest quality, smooth Birch Wood grain, slightly grooved around the perimeter parallel to a center hole for the WAND. Each Ball is tumbled, sanded, and clear-coat finished with a water, oil and sweat-proof seal.
Strong, shiny, sterile metal instills sensations of science and medicine. Each WAND End is precisely honed to exact specifications, including a quick-release button for graceful removal and insertion into one another and the Center WAND.
Flexible, lively, resilient rubber resounds melodies of sport and motion. Textured and properly cushioned Rubber/TPR Bands and End Caps are medical grade. Rapid removal and replacement of each component empower the user to add precise texture and cushioning while moving through activity progression with ease.

Risks and challenges
Parts and Assembly
MOBO System is a complicated project. Every MOBO component is a custom part. There are multiple materials, from wood to metal to rubber to fabric, and therefore multiple manufacturers need to be coordinated. It is definitely challenging, but nothing we haven't done before. We've been investing in good manufacturing relationships for MOBO System; we have a strong team, a reliable supply chain, and we are ready to deliver what we promise. We promise.
Acts of God
Even though we are in Austin, TX, our suppliers are scattered about the US, Mexico and Asia. We figure that the weatherman can neither predict the weather, nor the future - so neither can we. We will do all that we can to avoid fires, floods, union strikes, customs waiting, lane closures, big movie opening weekends and the like - so we're as prepared as we can be. No matter, come hell or high water, we'll get MOBO into your hands so you are free to move and free from pain. We promise.
We're excited at the opportunity to deliver not just a quality product on time, but the first mobility product that does it all. There will be challenges, and unexpected events, but we a will overcome them and stay in communication along the way. We Promise.
