If it was not for a serious car accident in 1975, Errol Marklein may never have triggered Europe's wheelchair revolution. Frustrated by the limitations of his wheelchair, it was a chance encounter to test a wheelchair training device when Errol realized its design could be adapted to what he desired: a faster, lighter and more agile wheelchair. Errol's realization would become the SOPUR Track, Europe's first racing wheelchair. The desire to live without limits would drive SOPUR to revolutionize not just sports, but also daily wheelchairs in Europe - starting with the introduction of one of the first personalized folding wheelchairs in 1980. Today, SOPUR is a leader in wheelchair innovation. We pride ourselves on the world-class design and excellent driving characteristics of our wheelchairs. Our passion is our customers and we are dedicated to breaking down barriers, so everyone can live without limits.
