BioDapt is a company that designs, manufactures and distributes high performance lower limb prosthetic components used for action sports and other similar activities. The goal is to manufacture the highest quality and highly versatile components that allow amputees to participate in sports and activities. This equipment can be, and is used by many elite adaptive athletes at the highest level of competition as well as the average person who just wants to get out and be active doing the sports/activities they enjoy.
The Moto Knee and Versa Foot was created by Mike Schultz, a professional snowmobile racer that lost his leg above the knee in 2008, do to an injury while racing. “ I wanted to get back to doing the activities I loved (mainly motocross and snowmobile racing) , but I soon found out there was nothing that would really allow me to ride the way I did before my amputation. With my knowledge and experience of fabrication, the experience of tuning suspension on my race equipment and my unwillingness to compromise I set out to create what I needed. After nearly two years of development I have come up with a knee unit that is versatile enough to handle many different action sports and has helped me win multiple ESPN X Games medals in the adaptive motocross and snocross events. In my many years of racing as a professional I’ve learned it takes a few key components to be successful; Support from the people around you, a whole lot of Determination and the right Tools for the job," Said Mike Schultz, owner of BioDapt.
After Mike compete at his first adaptive sporting event he soon realized that many other amputees could benefit from the equipment he was working on. A year and half later in 2010, he started his new company called BioDapt.
