Together, with GBY SWISS, towards better health
GBY and IAT innovation for wheelchair users
"The Innovation Center for assistive technologies of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation deals with technical developments that promise to make life easier for people with reduced mobility.
In addition to our own developments, we support first-class, innovative ideas which are introduced or implemented by external providers of ideas. The project GO-TRYKE® Easy by GBY Ltd is one of these ideas worthy of support.
The GBY team has a high level of competence and expertise, which guarantees the quality and benefit for those affected."

Cerebral, the foundation that supports individuals with cerebral motor disabilities and their families.
"The collaboration between Cerebral and GBY SWISS is a source of pride for inclusion. Their adapted bike, 'Go-Tryke,' offers more than just mobility; it provides a fun and enjoyable way to take control of one's health.
We wholeheartedly support GBY's mission, which aims to make health and physical activity accessible to everyone, regardless of physical abilities. The current Go-Tryke models and the prototype for children perfectly embody this vision.
Our joint work continues to offer enriching experiences to our community. Together, we make mobility and health accessible to all."

GBY collaborates with major research players
"Medical discoveries are no longer the result of one brilliant individual. They now require close collaboration between scientists, doctors, engineers and industries - in short, multidisciplinary teams that do together what would be impossible by the sum of their parts.
Our meeting with Sebastian Tobler and GBY illustrates this synergy perfectly. A passionate person at the head of an innovative company that collaborates with engineers from EPFL, CHUV physicians and other industries such as GTX Medical to devise solutions that improve the lives of people with motor deficits. A beautiful story that only just started. Forward."

“GBY SWISS is a quality partner, it shares our vision of a world where sport is accessible to all. This collaboration is an important step in our mission to promote inclusion and expand the horizons of adaptive sport.

GBY SWISS plays a vital role in supporting this event, illustrating our shared commitment to sporting inclusion.
Our partnership with GBY SWISS is a living example of the positive impact that collaboration can have in the field of wheelchair sport. It is a demonstration of our shared desire to push boundaries, break barriers and make sport a reality for everyone. Together, we are creating a future where adapted sport is a source of pride.»

"Turning an invention into a successful product on the market requires an elaborate intellectual property strategy in order to promote its invention to investors, to protect it from competitors, to negotiate contracts between different development partners, and to verify patents held by third parties. It is particularly motivating for P&TS to have been able to collaborate with GBY on these aspects from the very beginning of the project and to help make this dream of giving mobility to people with reduced mobility a reality."
Christophe Saam, Director P&TS, Neuchâtel

"In partnership with GBY, we were among the first to test their prototype bikes, immediately recognising the potential of this project, which skilfully combines therapy, sport and fun. Our collaboration was born out of the shared passion of our founders, who are both affected by spinal cord injury and determined to transform the way this condition is perceived."
