About the solution
Being deaf and suffering from Type 1 Diabetes, Joe started creating this work gear while he was still in highschool. His mother is a teacher who had surgery on her wrists, which means that she can’t lift more than two pounds at a time.
Joe decided to invent this equipment to help his mother during her physical therapy, as well as other who are limited due to a physical disability.
“What about people who are older, so their wrists are weaker, or they have arthritis or a sore back or they’re obese?”, the inventor questioned. “Somebody could help them, and that’s what I’m trying to do. The dream is giving everybody, regardless of what physical challenge they have, an equal opportunity to work out”.
Joe starting working on a prototype for the gear, using the high school 3D printer.
After winning him the first Next Generation Entrepreneurs Award, a $10,000 grant from the Pinellas Education Foundation, Joe kept developing more prototypes, and is trying to make is way into the market by founding his own company - SleppSolutions, LLC.
“Everybody hoorahs when they find out I’m only 17, and it’s given me tons of support,” the entrepreneur expressed. “Life is full of infinite opportunities which create infinite possibilities. I learned that anything can happen and just because we’re high schoolers, that doesn’t mean nothing.”

Joe, this is a great solution, thanks for sharing it here! I'm young and love to exercise, but since I suffer from RA my wrists can't take weight-lifting very well - this might just be the solution to my problem!
