With the most innovative design and made-in-the USA manufacturing, Nuprodx Mobility delivers the highest quality and the most complete solutions for in-home use and travel.
How It All Began
Nuprodx founder Bruce Hammer understands the need for mobility solutions as well as anyone. Bruce, a former professional motorcycle racer, was ranked second in the United States when his life took an unexpected turn in 1982. Bruce crashed during a race and became a quadriplegic after breaking his neck at the sixth/seventh vertebra. Bruce, who also had a background in architecture, eventually began designing and creating products that would help him travel more independently. Inspired by the freedom that the products provided, Bruce founded Nuprodx in 1998 to offer solutions to others. Since then, Nuprodx has grown to produce the most complete, the most innovative, and highest quality in-home and travel solutions on the market.
Bruce Hammer, Founder & CEO
Throughout the late 70’s Bruce Hammer juggled two careers, the first in cabinet & furniture making and the second in motorcycle racing. In 1980 he earned the rank of number-two professional motorcycle roadracer in the United States. In 1981 he co-founded Team Hammer, 13-time national champions. During a crash at a national championship race in 1982, Bruce suffered a life-changing injury and became a quadriplegic. After completing a four-month stay in a southern California rehab hospital and re-starting his life, he quickly realized how difficult it was to travel with a disability. Bruce first attempted to create a portable shower chair for himself by simply cutting apart a standard tub transfer bench, after which he put the pieces into a big suitcase. The Nuprodx line of products is the result of over 40 years of experience and determination to make products that help others live better.
