Collective Ability

We are Paul & Marguerite McElroy and we make up Collective Ability, an information resource which has grown out of our own story: Marguerite, an ex-social worker, developed Post Polio Syndrome about 10 years ago ~ and Paul, a medical research scientist, set about looking for what might be of help to her. Paul, who has a PhD in Immunology, has used his scientific expertise to discover well-documented and scientifically rigorous findings about nutrition that have led to Maggi's massively improved health and well being.

I'm not 'that woman with callipers (leg braces)'

My name is Julia and I was born in the south of England in 1961. When I was four years old, while accompanying my parents in foreign parts, I contracted polio. The consequence was that I was left paralysed from the waist down. Apart from that, there's nothing to distinguish me from anyone else. I do everything that I want to do; I go wherever I choose, and I mix with a group of friends just like any other sociable person.

Thomas Fetterman Inc

Greetings! My name is Thomas Fetterman and I've been using crutches since I had Polio 47 years ago. In 1988, I invented and patented a new crutch tip technology with a built-in shock absorbing system. They are now available in two sizes; the original larger Performance tip and the smaller Tornado tip. Just about everyone who has tried them has become a dedicated customer. To date more than 60,000 pairs have been sold. Why not experience the difference for yourself?
In 1991 I met Woody Witte, owner of Enabling Technologies. They design and build the best outriggers, flipskis and aluminum crutches available under the Superlite™ trademark. Together we offer Superlite Crutches accessorized with my patented Tornado / Performance gel filled crutch tips, Performance Gel Handgrips , Padded Leather Cuff Inserts and Spats Door Guards in a full range of anodized colors.
Be sure to check out the Crutch Showcase to see our entire stock of crutches and canes!
