This is so cool. Was surfing on Facebook and came across this awesome foundation on the 3BaysGSA page.

I can’t even imagine what it must be like to go through life without my legs and not being able to do many of the day-to-day tasks we all take for granted.

The Stand Up and Play Foundation has created such a wonderful product that allows those with mobile disabilities to participate in sports, including golf! According to it’s website:

The Paramobile was originally designed for disabled golfers, but can also be customized for use in other sports and leisure activities such as fishing or archery for example. With its strong chassis frame, the Paramobile can cope with gradients of up to 30 degrees and sideways inclinations of about 17 degrees. The Paramobile will turn automatically into a safe position should these limits be exceeded. The design allows for an absolutely secure footing in any position.

The therapeutic benefits of the golf game for physically limited players are immense. It stimulates the metabolism, stretches the muscles, reduces spasticities and enhances the mobility of their joints. The all-terrain Paramobile with its patented stand-up device combines practical know-how with innovative ideas for maximum playing fun. Its unequalled stability when the golfer is hitting the ball enables performance that is comparable to those of non-handicapped players.

Please visit the foundation’s website to learn more about the product and how to get involved. So cool…
