Global Research Innovation and Technology L3C
GRIT is a social enterprise startup based in Boston, Massachusetts. We believe in a stakeholder driven design process, where the people who use a technology help to design it. We started as the MIT Mobility Lab where we invented the Leveraged Freedom Chair (LFC), a lever-powered all-terrain wheelchair. After four years of testing the LFC in the field, we founded GRIT in 2012 bring the LFC to market. The LFC is the mountain bike of wheelchairs. It enables people with disabilities in developing countries to move beyond the pavement, providing them with the mobility they need to lead independent lives.
