Steadicam Inventor Garrett Brown’s Latest Device Strives to Help People with Mobility Challenges

What do a camera and a mobility assisting device have in common? Ask Garrett Brown.

Brown, the inventor of the Steadicam (and a Philly Tech Week 2019 speaker) has officially launched his latest invention, the Zeen. The mobility invention aims to blend aspects of a wheelchair and a walker to help folks with mobility challenges get around more seamlessly.

Brown was inspired to invent the Zeen nearly a decade ago, after watching his father struggle with mobility issues while dealing with a health problem back in 2013. Brown said he saw his father and his father’s friends using walkers, and was not impressed by the design of them.
