Meet Steven Ralph - Westfield Local Heroes 2021

Supporting people with paralysis

Resilient. Optimistic. Inspiring

After suffering a complete spinal cord injury, Steve Ralph is on a mission to help people with paralysis or disability regain independence, choice, and control of their health and care.

Steve became paralysed from the neck down in an accident in 2017. He has since founded Maslow, an award-winning app that helps people coordinate their various therapy regimes and providers and stay on top of everything so they can spend more time living.

Maslow helps users to remotely access their home therapy programs and share them and their routines with support workers and family. It is voice-enabled and accessible, so even those with extensive paralysis can use the app to make staying on top of their care easier.

Steve was once an active, independent, and adventurous young adult. After having that stripped away, he has become motivated to advocate for people with disabilities.

“As a young person who has acquired a disability, I am dedicated to breaking down barriers and perceptions for people with disabilities in the community,” says Steve.

He says he is proud to be nominated as a Westfield Local Hero. “We're excited to continue working to ensure everyone who suffers a traumatic injury – and anyone living with a disability – has access to the best possible tools to help them improve their quality of life.”

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. Maslow will use its funds to provide logistical support for Steve, support his professional development and commission customer stories to share across the platform.
