Vizymates is the brain-child of Sydney woman, Susan Hughes, who was run down on a quiet suburban street as an 8-year-old and has since suffered chronic spinal pain. When a friend, Richard Lakin, also shared his traumatic experience of nearly running over a school child on a rainy afternoon, they came up with Vizymates.
The pair spent two years testing with parents’ focus groups and their hunch that having the tubes hang off backpacks and swing around with the wearer’s movement would aid visibility, paid off. Research into the design, materials, and manufacturing to be compliant with Australian Standards commenced, and the first products were launched in Australia in 2016.
Vizymates is an Australian designed product, fully Australian owned and run by a small energetic and enthusiastic team.
