“Our goal is to empower as many people as possible to live independent, active and equal lives.”

 

Living actively

Kailamed’s mission is to empower people to live independent, active and equal lives – despite of weakened physical abilities, various disabilities, medical conditions or for example the uncertainties brought on by old age.

One of our inspirers is Salme niemi, who suffered from polio when she was a child, and from early life, began to solve seemingly small yet surprisingly big everyday challenges with inventive ideas. How to get up from the floor onto a chair without strength in her legs or hands? By sitting and maneuvering on two piles of books, making each pile taller book by book, and gradually getting higher up. There were no other aids available, nor anyone to assist her. This action of rocking from side to side on a pile of books led Salme to think that there must be a better way – a utility where the books were replaced by something else. That idea became the seed for Kailamed’s first product.

Kailamed aims to solve everyday challenges such as Salme’s with new kind of products. The essential function of our products is to increase people’s self-determination and independence in situations where they would otherwise be dependent on others.
