About Marioway

Marioway project aims to bring to the market an innovative, hands-free, verticalizing, electric and app-connected wheelchair with unique design for people with walking impairments, meeting the users’ needs in terms of easier mobility, passive rehabilitation and relational symmetry restoration.

This will bring the disabled person at the same eye-level as able-bodied people thus standing as a unique added value, meeting an “unspoken” need till today.

Marioway is a cultural revolution, a tool of integration and first aid for people with walking impairments, admired and desired by able-bodied! Our goal is to narrow the disability gap.

We became a B Corp because we want to co-create value with other companies, sharing our vision of collaborative economy and social inclusion, generating positive benefit for the community, the environment and future generations.

The Change We Seek®

The long-term outcome aspired by Marioway is the improvement of the quality of life of those currently bound to a wheelchair. These persons’ quality of life fundamentally depends on 1) Health; 2) Relationships; 3) Esteem; 4) Self-actualisation; 5) Quality of life; where one need being met is the precondition for achieving another.

Marioway’s most important point of influence on this system of outcomes is at the “health” stage. The health effects can be categorised into improvements in the users’ physical and psychological wellbeing. While better physical health is a direct improvement of the quality of life, the improvements in mental health deriving from regaining the upright position and increased spatial independence affect both the users’ relationships and their self-esteem. In turn, these may mean direct improvements in quality of life.
