KMINA: The world's first painfree and stylish crutches

Are you ready for crutches innovation?

If you have ever used standard crutches or know someone that has, you know just how painful they are.

KMINA is the next generation of CRUTCHES, a product that has barely changed in the last 4.000 years (since the Ancient Egypt).

We've PATENTED KMINA crutches. After long nights, many prototypes, and many tests with real users, we created the world's first PAINFREE, STYLISH, and AFFORDABLE crutches, but we need your collaboration to jump into the next stage!

Acknowledgment

We have been acknowledged by the following organizations with several prizes and mentoring sessions for our project.

- Fundación CASER (Foundation)
- La Destilería de Startups (Incubator)
- Lanzadera (Accelerator)
- ThyssenKrupp (Company)

With your help, we will be able to begin the production of KMINA crutches and hit the market in early 2017.

Your funding will complete our investment to cover molds' cost and our first production serie's cost of KMINA crutches:

 

 

We are collaborating with elderly people, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients and neuromuscular patientes, thanks to the partnership agreements between KMINA and CIMA, ADELA and ASEM Madrid.


 

 

  

This is our project timeline to achieve delivery on march 2017:

 

We have developed many prototypes and we have continually tested them with real users.

 Tests and feedback from real users have been the perfect formula to get the final prototype completely adapted to meet people's need.

                                                          Tests with real users

We are a multidisciplinary team composed of 3 main partners.

Ignacio Mañero - CEO & Founding Partner: Mechanical Engineer from ICAI, with more than 4 years of experience in startups, in business consulting and in strategy consulting. He suffered using standard crutches many times, so he invented KMINA crutches.

Alejandro Vañó - COO & Founding Partner: Economist from Polytechnic University of Valencia, with more than 4 years of experience in audit and business consulting. After an accidente, he also suffered using crutches.

Jaime Usabiaga - Advisor & Founding Partner: Doctor of Philosophy with wide experience in Traumatology and Orthopaedic Surgery. He was the Chief of Traumatology Division in University Hospital Donostia, professor and speaker in many congresses. He knows well the pain that crutches cause in patients.

More about us

Riesgos y desafíos

We will be ready to produce after collecting the funds but we might face some problems with our suppliers. In that case, we might suffer delivery delays but we will always deliver them as soon as possible.

We are a competent team and we know how to make real products from the beginning. We also have Lanzadera support, one of the most important acceleration programs from Spain.
