Our mousetrap story began with a tennis ball sized rock. While hiking in the Cascade Mountains in Washington, Clifford Perry had the fortunately unfortunate accident of turning his ankle on a rock. After a few long weeks of therapy on wobble boards and foam rolls, he developed an idea for a better mousetrap.
Unlike most of us with ideas for a better product, Clifford has an inventor brother and engineer nephew, Don and Joe Perry. Don and his son Joe were able to pull together a team of entrepreneurial physicians, therapists, engineers, business people, and sports fanatics to begin working on a better orthopedic rehabilitation and muscle strengthening device.
After many months speaking and learning from interested stakeholders, drawing with our number 2 pencils, drinking gallons of coffee, and fitting square pegs in round holes, the PROPRIO® 5000 Reactive Balance System was created. A NASA space launch would have been easier.
Pretty soon we were changing people’s lives. Rehabilitation and training was not only better, but actually fun.
The PROPRIO® revolution has begun and is being led by the most progressive rehabilitation clinics, hospitals, researchers and sports organizations in the country. With our partners, we will work to continuously improve the ProprioSoft™ software, product design, user applications, and training protocols. Our success is tied to yours. We’re happy to be working together.
