Sports development

  • Wheelchair sports make #freedomofmovement accessible. Sport has a positive effect on body and mind and enriches your day-to-day life. As this is so important to us in our role as a supplier and non-profit organisation, we also want to provide active financial support for wheelchair sports. This is why we offer everyone with a spinal cord injury and similar disabilities around the world 10% discount on the sales price of sports aids. This also applies to institutions.

     

    Further specifications: if the sports device is financed by insurance or other contributions, the 10% is applied to the excess. The discount also applies to repairs and modifications, including material, in the area of sports aids. According to our definition, sports aids include, for example, rugby wheelchairs, racing wheelchairs, hand bikes, sports prostheses and orthotic devices, including accessories for the aid, such as wheels, tyres, etc. It does not include accessories such as standard commercial gloves or helmets, etc. Any arising transport costs are excluded from the discount.

Innovation

Elite wheelchair sports are an innovation driver for Orthotec.

When the best people in their disciplines commit to a joint goal, solutions arise that set new standards, which is something we love and something that serves the well-being of wheelchair users. This is why we drive innovation with our projects and create networks of experts for this purpose.

Improvements relating to materials, manufacturing processes, aerodynamics and shapes are channelled into general wheelchair technology, medicine, and rehabilitation of people with a spinal cord injury.
