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 to bring the LFC to market. We help people with disabilities get off-road and on with their lives.
