A little bit about us

Spring Loaded Technology

Spring Loaded Technology is changing the way the world moves. We thrive at the interface of research and development to build, manufacture, and deliver breakthrough technologies that can change and improve lives. We are looking for bright minds and passionate people to join our world-class team.

Spring Loaded emerged from an interdisciplinary innovation lab that focused on developing solutions for real customer problems.

We started with the basic idea of making a bionic knee brace that could make you stronger, more mobile, and less prone to fatigue.

We imagined a world where mobility is never an impairment: a world where limitations to natural movement caused by injury, disorder or disability are restored and where human performance is enabled to break boundaries.

After four years of research and development and hundreds of prototypes, we developed Levitation™, the world's first bionic knee brace.

We know this is just the beginning. We're excited to grow everyday, and we love what we do.
