Spotlight on the grab-er-done cane     by adaptive appAlachia





EI is supporting the business development of Adaptive Appalachia, LLC (AA) in the heartland of Appalachia. AA intends to create new jobs for manufacturing adaptive products for the disabled and products that adapt agricultural waste to create eco-friendly bioplastic products. These jobs will be made available to displaced workers and the chronically unemployed due to past experience with opioid addiction or incarceration.

Adaptive Appalachia Indiegogo Campaign Coming Soon....


The Grab-er-done Cane (TM) is an innovative device for the mobility impaired that combines an offset handle cane with a grabber/reacher. The first 200 units of this newly trademarked device will be offered as a perk for people who support the Indiegogo small business development crowdfunding campaign for Adaptive Appalachia, LLC (AA) founded in the heartland of Appalachia. The goal of the campaign is to raise funds to develop manufacturing operations and research and development capability for new AA eco-friendly bioplastic products. The goal is for AA to produce new, innovative products with as many domestically sourced parts and materials as possible to maximize the creation of new green-economy jobs in Appalachia.
