“In the fall I had a fall from a great height, which I survived with severe fractures in both legs and a vertebra.
After a long stay in hospital, mainly in a lying position, the Schaffarik-board was the only way for me to build up my leg muscles again without getting up. This also reactivated mobility and sensors in the ankle and knee.
An ingenious, light therapy tool that I could use easily at home. Without the Schaffarik board, my recovery would certainly not have progressed so fast.”
