BraceAbility Moves into Innovation Incubator Takes Advantage of UNI Resources, Moves into Innovation Incubator Suites

AUGUST 20, 2013 -- Iowa Innovation corporation Takes Advantage of UNI Resources, Moves into Innovation Incubator Suites

Cedar Falls, IA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013


To accommodate its growing team and inventory,, a leading retailer of affordable orthopedic supplies, recently moved into an office with the University of Northern Iowa Innovation Incubator. This move grounds the e-commerce company at an official place of business and allows employees to tap into the resources offered by this facility, which is specifically designed to be gateway between the private sector, the business community and the expertise of faculty and staff on campus.


Shaun Linderbaum, CEO of BraceAbility, says, We are all excited about the move into this state-of-the-art facility. UNIs Innovation Incubator truly offers start-up companies the tools and resources they need to thrive in a cost-effective manner. I look forward to the acceleration in company growth and the development in relationships that this move affords.

The move is timely as seven interns joined the BraceAbility team this summer and there have been several staff additions over the past year. Linderbaum says the move will also improve the business customer service and bottom line as BraceAbility will be able to stock more of its own line of orthopedic braces, such as it's popular plus size knee brace, in Cedar Falls.
