This project demonstrates our ability to design a product that can be launched on Kickstarter while also meeting the structural, manufacturing and cost requirements necessary to support post Kickstarter business success.
This project was an exciting collaboration between members of the Pixel and Timber team and Jennifer Karulf — a brilliant Cincinnati-based inventor and personal trainer. Jennifer invented the Cradle Coach based on her insight that hauling around a pumpkin seat with an infant onboard was fantastic exercise.
Based on a prototype she had created and tested herself, Jennifer asked us to develop a production version of the device appropriate for low volume manufacturing. The final version includes provides dozens of powerful exercises. The Cradle Coach is fabricated from bent steel tubing and includes an onboard set of concentric weights. Jennifer explains the origins and opportunity of her device in the Kickstarter video below.
