“Good job Ford!” – Millions of disabled people push a chair like Garibaldi did, but for them the problem is to deliver packages with biped robots!!

In a more or less near future, the delivery of goods, from local supermarket to large online stores, could be carried out by self-driving cars or by biped folding robots, housed in the back of the van, which would take care of the last transport phase, delivery at home. This at least is Ford’s vision and his Digit project.     According to the World Health Organization, 1% of the world’s population is sitting on a wheelchair – we are…

MSC cruise and disability

MSC cruise and disability

I had never been on a cruise, this was my first experience. Although I believe there are many things to reconsider, I think it is a very nice experience to do for a wheelchair person.

Therefore the “disability” target in numerical terms is not to be underestimated, but…

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

There is no growth that has not been built through mistakes, defeats and disappointments. I think that Europeans are used to giving failure a negative connotation, to blame and to hide. I say Europeans, because the attitude of Americans towards bankruptcy is decidedly less demonizing. I personally experienced failure: it meant for me to test my dreams and realize that I can be stronger than adversity. The company GENNY MOBILITY SA, founded by me in 2011, went bankrupt in 2017,…

Luck is not a safety measure

Luck is not a safety measure

We happen to see more and more devices that use self-balancing technology and that are used from people with reduced mobility. This is certainly a confirmation that in the world there is a need to invest in alternative technologies than into traditional wheelchairs and Genny was undoubtedly the first to go this way. In my opinion, two major serious dangers are lurking. The first is undoubtedly the idea of ​​being able to independently purchase a self balancing base and build…
