Breadcrumb trail



The young doctor who would go on to found the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation and who is currently its honorary president, Dr. Guido A. Zäch, first came into contact with people with spinal paralysis back in the 1960s. He quickly realised that there were gaps in the Swiss hospital, social and insurance system. He then crystallised his vision of holistic rehabilitation for paraplegics and tetraplegics. In 1973 he became a consultant in the Paraplegic Centre in Basel as it was known at the time.
