The Visitor Centre of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation
A place of encounters
The ParaForum is a place of encounters between visitors and people living with a spinal cord injury. This is where they can meet at eye level, satisfy their thirst for knowledge on the topic of spinal cord injuries, and make unforgettable memories.
Visit our interactive exhibition and find out more about the everyday life of Sarah, Matteo, Christine, and Stefan, or let our tour guides take you round the Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC).
