active skiing with paraplegia
The unique biomechanical mechanism of this ski device enable the less abled user to ski just like a valid person. By means of moving the upper body slightly to the left or right all regular ski movements, even the 'canting' of the skies is imitated almost perfectly.
redesign for production
The design later has been optimized into perfection and was provided with proper damping and functionality such as a click-belt for the ski elevator and improved upholstery.
