Learn more about the people who made Obi a reality.
Provide people with magical moments that inspire a mindset undaunted by limitations and excited about possibilities.
In high school, Jon Dekar witnessed his Grandfather’s frustration of eating dependently due to Corticobasal Degeneration. As eating is one of life’s great pleasures and a basic human need, Jon expected there would be amazing technologies available to help people eat – they did not exist. With the belief that everyone deserves access to an independent and enjoyable dining experience, he became determined to make his idea a reality for people. Jon and his team introduced Obi to the world after ten years of persistence.
We believe that every individual, regardless of condition, should be able to live a fulfilling and empowering life. We want to create technology that encourages people to live a life without labels or limits and encourages them to invent new possibilities. With our products and brand, we’ll continue to do everything in our power to facilitate that lifestyle. Obi is just our foot in the door – we’ll never stop dreaming big.
