About Our Platform
LiveEquipd is a Chicago-based, health tech start-up headquartered in the 1871 incubator space.
The LiveEquipd platform provides care managers and therapists with a vital tool to improve their process of equipping their patients with the products they need now and in the future. LiveEquipd empowers people with a paralysis related diagnosis to find the medical equipment, supplies, and assistive technology they need, taking the guesswork out of finding the best products for patients with various levels of ability.
About Our Founder
Our founder, Andre Johnson, established the company to help others overcome the challenges he encountered as he sought the best ways to equip himself post injury. As an innocent victim of Chicago gun violence, Andre has lived with a Spinal Cord Injury since October 2004. Since then, he has required the use of durable and nondurable medical supplies. Andre cultivated the idea for LiveEquipd when he received a new wheelchair in April 2016 and couldn’t find a suitable cup holder to suit his needs.
Prior to founding LiveEquipd, Andre attended DeVry University Chicago, where he earned both his Associates of Applied Science in Electronic and Computer Technology and a Bachelor’s of Science in Electronics Engineering.
Andre holds the title of Client Success at Kaizen Health, a fast-rising startup solving SDOH issues via transportation. He completed the Kellogg Executive Education Program, where he obtained his certificate in Advanced Management. Andre loves technology and innovation, especially those products in the healthcare space.
