This vibrant startup aims to empower people with disabilities or discomforts to live an active lifestyle, alleviate their pain points and take part in more daily activities or sports.

Since 2012 the Agitos Foundation has become the leading global organisation for developing Parasport as a tool for changing lives and contributing to an inclusive society for all.
