Golf offers people the opportunity to enjoy a day outdoors while interacting with friends, colleagues and competitors. It is often where business partners are forged and where couples recreate. Unfortunately, for someone with a disability, the golf course is not too accessible.
Stand Up and Play
Technology has come to the rescue. The all new Paramobile allows golfers who are confined to a wheelchair to traverse the links and stand up to swing their clubs.
The Paramobile was originally designed for disabled golfers, but can also be customized for use in other sports and leisure activities such as fishing or archery for example. With its strong chassis frame, the Paramobile can cope with gradients of up to 30 degrees and sideways inclinations of about 17 degrees. The Paramobile will turn automatically into a safe position should these limits be exceeded. The design allows for an absolutely secure footing in any position.
The therapeutic benefits of the golf game for physically limited players are immense. It stimulates the metabolism, stretches the muscles, reduces spasticities and enhances the mobility of their joints. The all-terrain Paramobile with its patented stand-up device combines practical know-how with innovative ideas for maximum playing fun. Its unequalled stability when the golfer is hitting the ball enables performance that is comparable to those of non-handicapped players.
Thanks to this piece of equipment, wheelchair users are discovering a new level of freedom and independence. Being able to stand up boosts self-esteem – one can finally stand up facing others at eye level – and in addition has a therapeutic effect: It promotes circulation and digestion, stretches tendons and ligaments, reduces spasticity and prevents joints seizing up.
