The founder of "MarioWay", Mario Vigentini (R), uses his creation next to Flaviano Tarducci (L), in charge of business development for MarioWay on July 19, 2017 at the Scientific and Technological Park "Kilometro Rosso" in Bergamo. Vigentini has created an innovative "hands-free" electrical wheelchair for people with motor impairment which allows them to be at the same height as a standing person. After nearly 20 years working with wheelchair-bound youngsters, Mario Vigentini wanted to revolutionise their quality of life, inventing a device that raises up users so they are face-to-face with those standing.
