Who and why

Our leadership:

DELANO MASSEY

“Living life is about experiencing the world with people you care about.” – Delano Massey

WHY EI

Delano experienced firsthand the effects of physical impairment after an accident during his military
service.

Awakening from a cliff-side fall, Delano regained consciousness with an onslaught of excruciating pain in his lower back, and making matters worse, he quickly learned of his loss of control and use of his legs. The gripping reality of the physical impairment was apparent, and the emotional and mental toll set in. Diagnosed with Cauda Equina Syndrome with Foot Drop, the needs and efforts of recovery and restoration began.

Delano shifted from service in Pearl Harbor to rehabilitation in Georgia. The spinal cord and lower extremity medical team began a rehabilitation process that continues today—more than 20 years later.

And now, his professional efforts and personal journey have brought him to a vision to help eradicate
impairment for everyone impacted. A lofty goal, yet every effort and technology to move the dial brings us
closer to achieving the goal.

ALLEN BRAY

“If you don’t have health, you don’t have anything.” – Allen Bray

WHY EI

Allen’s early years were challenging due to a diagnosis of dyslexia, asthma, and Osgood-Schlatter disease affecting the growth plates in both knees and forcing inactivity.

In the early 80s, there was limited support for diagnosis or training children with dyslexia, making reading particularly difficult. So Allen turned to numbers—and eventually graduated with high honors from The Georgia Institute of Technology with computer science and economics degrees.

Overcoming his asthma and Osgood-Schlatter disease before his 16th birthday, he set his sites to make the varsity cross-country team by his sophomore year. Almost 30 years later, Allen competes in triathlons, trail running, MTB endurance, cycling, and other sporting events nearly every weekend.

An endurance athlete, Allen’s passion for activity is connected to his belief that technology and entrepreneurship can solve impairment, pushing him to seek solutions and amplify their impact.

This love for activity drives a belief that technology and entrepreneurship can remove impairment.
