Freedom One Life is a Glasgow-based company specialising in advanced power wheelchairs. The company was founded in 2013 by Alex Papanikolaou, who started the company to enable people living with physical disability to expect and achieve the same standard of living and mobility that a non-disabled person takes for granted.
Papanikolaou, who has athetoid cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair on a daily basis, founded the business because he could not find a reliable power wheelchair in the market. In 2016, he was joined by Albert Nicholl, an experienced business operator in the mechanical devices sector to support the company’s commercialisation. The company is now preparing to market their advanced power wheelchair throughout the UK, Scandinavia and the US.
Murray Capital Ltd was part of a syndicate that invested in Freedom One Life in February 2018.
