“When learning how to walk you have to stand up once more than you fall down. This applies for both a small child and an adult. It holds true for learning how to walk, but in a transferred sense also for life itself. With a handicap it is an even steeper challenge. I have experienced that myself. For every physically handicapped person the Paramobile is an important and valuable tool that gives you a bit more freedom.” – Anthony Netto
