About

You're reading this because you know that Kickstarter funded projects have the capacity to make an innovative difference to people's lives. Now, you can truly impact the nature of long-term care. Movi is about bringing the principles of innovative design to the people who can benefit from it the most. We believe that with Movi you can truly make a quality of life difference for someone you care about.

Movi is truly unlike anything you have ever seen before. It is as safe and comfortable as we can make it. It filled the need we knew we had before we built it.

We are very proud to have Movi selected as a finalist for the prestigious International Design Excellence Award, sponsored by Fast Company.

Advances in healthcare are helping most of us live longer. We want to live comfortably in the security of our own homes for as long as possible. We want to maintain our fitness and activity for as long as possible. Movi is designed to help accomplish these goals.

One of the major challenges most of us eventually face is the gradual loss in our ability to stand and sit on our own. The solution is either to bring in additional help or to live in a new location with around the clock assistance. For less than the average cost of 2 months of home care, Movi can help. 

Here are initial customers sharing their experience.

Risks and challenges

We are currently finalizing production and distribution agreements to sell into acute care hospitals. We are on track to have first production units available for shipment in November, 2014. There may be unanticipated delays in completing initial production that could delay unit shipment.

Based on recent requests, we want to address the Use of Funds issue in more detail. Movi Medical, LLC. already has financial backing to pursue the acute care (hospital) market. This Kickstarter effort is being used to test market demand for the the home market. While we are extremely excited about feedback from early home customers, as a start up business, we must focus resources very carefully. If this campaign fails, immediate efforts to pursue the home market will be delayed. If this campaign is successful, we will aggressively pursue the home market now.

Over the past 24 months, we have been contacted by numerous end users and families expressing interest in purchasing Movi for home use. The videos above show initial customer experiences. We continue to be contacted on a daily basis by family members inquiring if Movi could provide assistance for potential users who have very specific needs for improved body support, the ability to change position over time, and help with standing and sitting. The funds from this Kickstarter campaign will be used to both build units for home customers and support additional research and development in options and features specifically designed to meet the needs of these home users.

To this point, we sincerely appreciate every single dollar of funding you provide. In addition to customers interested in purchasing units, we have had a number of individuals expressing interest in supporting this effort, with amounts as small as $1, just because they believe products like this need to exist to help people they care about. Whatever your interests are, you are making a statement with your support.
