A pioneer with tenacity
Dr. Guido A. Zäch is the founding father of the holistic rehabilitation of people with spinal paralysis. The Swiss Paraplegic Foundation (SPF), the Swiss Paraplegics Association (SPA), the Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC) and Swiss Paraplegic Research (SPR) were established on his initiative. On 26 September 2007 the Board of Trustees of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation made Dr. Guido A. Zäch its honorary chairman in recognition of his great work in founding, building up and, for many years, managing the Swiss Paraplegic Group. www.guidozaech.ch
