GET HIGHER –
The story of PowerBaseTec started in 1997, when our father Christian Nachtwey got the diagnosis “Th 12 complete” after a serious traffic accident: paralyzed from belly button downwards. His great passion, the golf game, he could off hook, it was said by the medical profession. But it was exactly this grim message that spurred the ingenuity of the then 40s. Our father started screwing, experimenting and developing electric wheelchairs in his workshop. When the first “ParaGolfer” electric wheelchair with a rearing function was off-road and had proven itself on selected golf courses, we started with the whole family to develop this achievement into a business model. In 2002, our father founded the company and made a fuss out of his fate: he continued to develop the product range, set quality standards and standards for global sales. The ParaMotion continues to offer the best technology available on the market today, giving new meaning to countless people, new power, a new quality of life and a piece of new freedom – worldwide.
