Pittsburgh Founder: Courtney Williamson of AbiliLife

Interview by Jonathan Kersting

Pittsburgh Founder


Courtney Williamson never intended to found a company. More than five years ago while attending Carnegie Mellon University, she set out to make a back brace that would help her mother who was suffering with Parkinson's Disease. In the process, she ended up founding AbiliLife and has never looked back since!

Learn how she invented the Calibrace+ back brace which is a brace specifically designed for Parkinson's patients to improve posture and balance while maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle.

She has also taken 5 years of manufacturing and production experience to build an online course How To Manufacture A Physical Product in 90 Days to teach people how to make their dream product. Check out this link for a free sneak peek into what the course is all about
