Founding Story

Following an accident in 2012 that left Mike Brown a paraplegic, he assembled an all star team and adaptdefy ® was born. The LapStacker ® is the first product of adaptdefy ®.

We connect the global community of Adaptdefiers, highlighting their incredible stories & develop products that help adapt & defy.
