Our Story

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Larry Bohanan, the inventor of the Quadriciser, was raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, and worked 28 years at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Y-12 National Security Complex. He supported prominent scientists and engineers in their patent and invention endeavors there. 

Tragedy struck when his father Wallace suffered several mini-strokes and a major stroke, which left him immobile and with decreasing circulation that presented new problems. The doctor advised amputation due to gangrene, but Larry was determined to help. He created a motorized machine that mimicked a walking motion, allowing Wallace to move all four limbs and improve circulation. After using the machine, Wallace opened his eyes for the first time in two days, and the new device facilitated much-needed circulation.

The device was so successful that Larry’s cousin Colin, paralyzed for 11 years after a motorcycle accident, asked to use it. After just nine days of use, Colin was reflexively able to catch his hat when it blew off his head – representing a remarkable improvement that marked the beginning of the Quadriciser in 1996.

About Quadricisers

Our Current Model

The Quadriciser is a medical device that helps individuals with minimum to severe disabilities receive rehabilitative therapy. It achieves this by moving all four limbs simultaneously in a natural motion with high repetitions to help reconnect nerve pathways in the brain. 

This motorized machine has a timer, speed control, grip assist gloves, foot cradles, adjustment bar, adjustable trapeze cords, gait wedge, and a reverse function. The bars at the top allow for multiple ranges of motion in the arms. The foot cradles are designed to give a natural walking motion while increasing flexion in the foot with specialized wedges that increase or decrease flexion. 

The Quadriciser is a in-home physical therapy tool that allows multiple ranges of motion in the arms while providing mass practice. Praised for gentle therapy, the Quadriciser team has spent years working with the medical community to develop the ultimate physical therapy device.
