The business incubator at Sector67 has a new member: John Lash started Mad DesignWorks LLC there in September of this year. Focused on designing and building custom assistive and adaptive devices for the disabled community Sector67 with its combination of office space and well appointed shop space is the perfect fit for a small startup like Mad DesignWorks.
After graduating from Madison College with a degree in Mechanical Design John wanted to do something to make the world a better place. Combining his interest in assistive and adaptive devices with his interest in design John aims to improve the quality of life for people with physical disabilities.
In addition to building custom assistive and adaptive devices Mad DesignWorks offers a variety of other services including:
- Modification of existing equipment
- Fabrication of hard to find or obsolete replacement parts
- Modification of furniture
- 504 Plan compliance
- Design and Manufacture of ergonomic devices
- Helping employers meet the needs of all their employees
One of the first projects Mad DesignWorks did at Sector67 was to design and build a custom tilt table to help a client with only limited use of one arm to pursue her painting career. With her new tilt table Jeanne can paint more independently than ever before. Once Jeanne is finished with a painting it is turned into a clock and sold locally.
Helping people like Jeanne become more independent and self supporting is really why Mad DesignWorks exists. Without the support of Sector67 and Chris Meyer this would not be possible, Mad DesignWorks is proud to be a part of this community.
