User experience

Portrait – Charly, Ottobock Skippi user

Always on the go

Charly is an active six-year-old from Berlin, and his favourite things about the Skippi are how fun it is to drive and the freedom of movement it gives him. He can easily cover longer distances together with his friends. The Skippi supports Charly especially on days when he needs an extra bit of strength and lets him move about independently.
