BATEC MINI 2

In 1996, Pau Bach had an accident that left him quadriplegic (C5-C6). He was 18 years old and wanted to design motorcycles. Now Pau has achieved his dream: he manufactures Batecs, "motorcycles" that change users' lives.

Frustrated with the selection of technical aids available on the market, he decided to manufacture his own artisanal mobility solutions. With the first prototypes, Pau was able to begin getting around on his own and get back to the normal life of a twentysomething. When he was 28, he decided to start up Batec Mobility to share his inventions with people in the same situation.

WE CHANGE LIVES THROUGH MOBILITY

Here at Batec Mobility we change the lives of our users by significantly improving their mobility. The greater independence and self-reliance they gain by using our handbikes allows them to lead lifestyles as similar as possible to those of a person with no disability.

We're proud that 94% of our users say that the Batec handbikes have substantially improved their life.

WE CREATE JOBS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

The Batec Mobility team is made up of 50% people with physical disabilities, most of which are seriously disabled and use a wheelchair and our handbikes. Additionally, these individuals hold a wide variety of positions within the company, most of which are highly visible positions of responsibility: from management to customer service, as well as our team of sales ambassadors.

We are committed to an integrative model that encourages coexistence among employees with and without disabilities.

3 WE IMPROVE SOCIAL PERCEPTION OF FUNCTIONAL DIVERSITY

At Batec Mobility we support and raise awareness of causes, projects, institutions and athletes with functional diversity working to encourage adapted sport and leisure activities as well as an active lifestyle for people with disabilities and, in particular, those with reduced mobility.

All of these proposals help boost the visibility of another way to live with a disability.

You can get used to being in a wheelchair. But NOT to giving up on life.
