art4sport for Bebe

The existence and support of art4sport have been crucial in the process of designing and developing the suitable prosthesis to allow Bebe to return to the fencing platform.

The first prototype was made at the end of 2009 at the Inail Prosthesis Centre in Vigorso di Budrio (BO) but it was too heavy and quite painful to use. In April 2010, a second one was created, developed and given to her by Arte Ortopedica of Budrio (BO) with the valuable collaboration of Otto Bock Italia. This proved to be more functional and pain-free, as well as allowing greater freedom of movement for the elbow. At the beginning of 2011, the third prototype was produced, further improved and even easier to wear.

art4sport has also purchased a wheelchair designed specifically for chair fencing, used by Bebe both in training and in competitions, and has provided the fencing gym in Mogliano Veneto (TV), Bebe’s hometown, with the appropriate equipment. art4sport has therefore taken care of the construction of a platform suitable for the practice of fencing in a wheelchair, which is used for training but also during demonstrations in various Italian cities (La Scherma in Piazza project).

The gym’s changing room has also been equipped with a specific bed to facilitate the athlete’s change of clothes.
