We are a group of people who have the closest relations to wheelchair users. We live the lives of active wheelchair users. We all know what wheelchair users need, what they want and how they think. We know, what pushes them forward.
We manufacture wheelchairs for floorball, basketball, rugby, tennis, and badminton. We also fabricate wheelchairs for everyday use and we have big plans to expand the supply by offering a wider variety of sporting equipment.
We do not offer a compensatory aid but a tool for maximizing of the potential of an active wheelchair user. That is why we are not afraid to go to the edge during the measurement and in the design of our wheelchairs and reject the market-established creation of alibi reserves, which, as a result, secretly hinder the development of the user’s possibilities for several years. The individual needs of the physically disabled athlete are a challenge for us. And challenges are our main motivation.
Kdo za tím stojí

Ivan is a father of an active wheelchair user, with whom he entered the wheelchair community in the year 2010. He is a cocreator of the project aktualne.cz/parasport and fights for fights for making handicapped sportsmen equal to the more prevalent ones.
Since 2009, Ivan tries to do the best for his son – he removes obstacles, contemplates safety, comfort and health protection. Therefore, a useful intersecting comes about in the Ultina team – the perspective of a wheelchair user is penetrated by a perspective of a personally (not just
occupationally) involved assistant.
