Empowering mobility by removing all the barriers to keep you accelerating forward

The Beginnings

Removing Barriers

Dr. Christie Powell was inspired to create a tool her clients could use at-home or on-the-go for body maintenance and recovery. Her determination to replicate the manual therapy and mobilization techniques she performed in the clinic led to years of product innovation and testing with her patients and athletes. After many design iterations that pushed all the boundaries and resulted in multiple patents, the end-product that emerged was a single myofascial release tool, MOBO.

The creation of Mobo

The creation of our product was only a starting point for a larger vision to improve overall mobility and movement in a population struggling with increasing musculoskeletal injuries and sedentary lifestyles. The next step was pulling together a team of industry experts and human movement specialists that shared her enthusiasm and commitment to improving quality of life through mobility tools, education and tech.

Our Mission & Vision

Mobility Matters

We believe everyone should be equipped with the knowledge and resources to live their most active life possible. Mobility is something we are born with, but not guaranteed. MOBO exists to create greater awareness that mobility matters and deliver the complete solution to take control of your personal mobility journey.
