Smart Mobility Inc. was established in mid 2016 as exclusive suppliers of smartCRUTCH to the USA and Canada, joining a worldwide network for distributing this exciting innovation in crutches.
Smart Mobility Inc. is owned and operated by a Father-Daughter duo living 10,000 miles apart, but sharing the same passion for unique, quality products that are affordable, and delivering them with a personal touch and a genuine care for those that use them.
Founder Errol East owned and managed a manufacturing and international distribution business in Access Control for 35 years, before selling it to a major global corporation.
President & CEO Kirsten Le Roux has had a professional career in marketing, and she has a soft spot for truly creative, beautifully designed, innovative products. Kirsten wants to live in a world where everyone has the freedom to move as much as possible, as she values that herself. Having had just a glimpse of how painful using axillary crutches was after breaking her ankle, she was delighted to find smartCRUTCH and couldn’t understand why everyone wasn’t already using them.
Kirsten and her husband Mike live in Pagosa Springs in Colorado, a small picturesque mountain town in the South San Juan Mountains (just below Wolf Creek Pass), and Kirsten is proud to bring a distributorship to rural Colorado, supporting local business.
When she’s not madly dispersing smartCRUTCHES, you can find her plotting her next travel adventure. Kirsten and Mike grew up in South Africa but have lived in London and Belfast in the UK, Melbourne and Cairns in Australia and now they are enjoying the cooler climate of the American Rockies.
