Support for sporting events and athletes

Umfassende medizinische Betreuung von Rollstuhlsportlern jeden Alters und jeder Disziplin

Sponsorship of Marcel Hug – multiple Paralympic Champion, World Champion and our Orthotec ambassador

Support through technical know-how

On the one hand, we support sporting events with our technical know-how by, for example, maintaining the racing service. On the other hand, it is also important to us to support individual and team athletes in wheelchair sports.

We place value on long-term partnerships. This allows us to be a reliable and trustworthy partner. These many years of cooperation in turn result in new ideas for the development of specialised customisations of sports and racing wheelchairs based completely on the individual wishes of the athlete.

    We have supported the Lucerne Sharks, whose passion suits us well, since autumn 2018: “Powerchair hockey is our passion as it allows us to practise an interesting sport despite our disability. We particularly like that fact that it is a fast and “action-packed” sport. Powerchair hockey finally gives us the chance to go full throttle and make the tyres squeal. This sport requires a great deal of teamwork and good moves. Playing together with the other players is also great fun.”
