Alois Praschberger – no limits for disabled people

Praschberger - Austria is manufacturer of skis, hand-bikes and other (sports) vehicles for disabled people.

The story of Alois Praschberger:

"Desire for movement and the joy of life. For me – as myself as wheelchair user – that was the motivation for developing and building my first sports equipment prototypes.

Twenty-five years later, a competent team now stands behind that vision, manufacturing custom-designed top-of-the-line equipment for professional and amateur sports lovers.

There is more in life than using your legs "to stand on your own two feet". The want of movement, the joy of life gave me as myself as wheelchair user, the will in 1982 to modify wheelchairs and to test different types of sledges and mono skis. My idea was to use winter sports and bikes for myself.

Now we manufacture top-class (sports) equipment individually made for professional and hobby users with my 12 men team in Ebbs / Tyrol. High quality and easiness of use are our principles to guarantee improvements and good results in the last 4 Paralympics and many national and international competitions.

Craftsmanship: the Quality of our products

The fundamentals: quality, functionality and unceasing development. It's an investment that pays: top rankings and more than 200 medals at the Paralympics and other international and national competitions are the proof.
