ABOUT US

The SandPad™ is a mobility assistance device which brings the physical world closer and helps give users the ability to better experience the outdoors without limitations. Created by amputee and entrepreneur Jerry Vasilatos, it was conceived to solve the problems he faced visiting beachfronts and is now available to others using crutches, canes and walkers who have also been faced with the difficulties of travelling across beaches and other challenging terrain.

"It’s an amazing device. The perfect solution for helping me stay active on the beach."

Beach Crutches, Sand Pad"While visiting the isles of Greece in 2003, I was faced with a difficult situation. I couldn't risk exposing the electronics in my prosthesis to sand or water, yet crossing the wide expanses to get from beach entrances to the shoreline so I could swim was exhausting and near impossible because of the struggles associated with crutch tips sinking into the sand and efforts required to maintain stability and momentum. Sadly, I did not spend much time at those beaches or enjoy many ocean swims. On returning to the states, I searched everywhere for a device I could attach to my crutches that would support my weight over the sand; in my mind's eye I could see what I needed, but was shocked to discover no one manufactured this simple device that would enable me to visit a beach much easier. In 2007 I set out with my father A.J., (who is an industrial designer) to create the SandPad™ in an effort to help both myself, and others suffering from the same difficulties preventing a full range of activity on beaches and waterfronts. Today I can once again visit a beach unencumbered by the shifting terrain, thanks to the support provided by the SandPad™."
