A History of Uplifting Lives:
Gorbel Inc. is a global leader in developing overhead material handling, lifting and safety systems for a range of industries. In 2012 Brian Reh, Gorbel’s President and CEO, was presented with an interesting idea. A Gorbel employee had watched as her daughter endured painful gait and balance rehabilitation following a vehicular accident. She observed multiple therapists and assistants guard her daughter, sometimes 4:1, as she learned to walk again. Gorbel’s G-Force® device uses a proprietary “float mode” to allow heavy materials to be moved with precision and little effort by an operator. The employee proposed to Brian that the same product concept could protect patients in rehabilitation.
