Heart on hand ♥ Diane Story

Diane Korn is American. As every year, she made the start of one of the events of Swim Across America, an American association that raises funds for cancer research. Activities can include walking, cycling, running, swimming or any other physical activity. A meaningful challenge that Diane continued to take up even after the onset of her disability, hats off !

“I participated in this event for many years before I was paralyzed in 2012. I always start the 1 mile (1.8km) swim. My wheelchair allows me to get in and out of the water so that I can participate in these swims. I take it with me to Florida when I swim in the gulf.

I train 6 or 7 days a week by swimming between 1 mile and 1.5 miles. I need someone to get in and ou of the water. This wheelchair allows me to pursue my passion for open water swimming. . »

New option on Marathon Hippocampe wheelchair : Push ends bars


To improve the pusher comfort when running, our Research and Development team developed a push ends bars adaptation. These optional parts, on the handlebars, allows the red handles of the chair to be clipped vertically.

 You can move the set according to your preferences, improving the comfort of the pusher during your running, trails or hikes.
