Freedom Concepts was founded in 1991 when President and CEO Ken Vanstraelen built an adaptive bike for a child with cerebral palsy. That one bike was such a success that it opened the door to many new requests and the birth of a company.
During our 30 years in the healthcare industry, Freedom Concepts Inc. has custom-built thousands of adaptive bicycles for riders of all ages and abilities, as well as support systems, positioning aids, and our line of alternative seating solutions, the Chill-Out Chair.
Today, Freedom Concepts Inc. has a team of talented individuals at its home base in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada who all share a passion for helping people with special needs experience the thrill, exhilaration, and simple joy of riding a bike. We also work with many non-profits, medical equipment dealers, and medical professionals to help more riders discover their freedom.
With the help of several key distributors across Canada, the United States, Australia, Ireland, and the U.K., we continue to increase our worldwide expansion, as well as innovate new products and align ourselves around our core values:
- We are passionate about inspiring and empowering our community.
- We are innovative and creative in our solutions and designs.
- We are inclusive and show empathy in the workplace and with our customers.
- We have fun and take pride in everything we do!
