Newsletter FERRIOL-MATRAT - Sporting Challenges with the Joëlette | Press Review about the Joëlette | Scoop.it
Joëlette and Co's insight:

Each year, many associations set themselves challenges, both sporting and humanitarian, with the objective of fulfilling a dream and be open to the world in spite of the disability. 

These challenges sometimes become an exploit such as the ascent of the highest peaks. We offer you the opportunity to discover the experience of three associations who, each in their own way and thanks to the Joëlette, venture off the beaten path.

In 1996 Mephisto Voyage organized - together with a French association - the first trip to Cappadocia for people with a physical handicap. 

 

We realized that this type of program did not yet exist in the area and decided to take up the challenge of providing such a program. 

Since 1996 we are proud to have organized numerous trips to Cappadocia and the Toros Mountains for physically disabled people

Access Tourism NZ | Press Review about the Joëlette | Scoop.it

Rome is known as the largest open museum in the world, one of the most visited cities and one of the must-see wonders. But it isn’t what one would consider accessible to wheelchairs, at least not all of it. In Rome, a must is undoubtedly to visit the Roman Forum, which is full of cobblestones, steps and arduous paths; the same is true for the excavations of Pompeii,  Ostia Antica, and many more such. Thanks to collaboration with Ferriol Matrat, which is a French company  who produce the “Joelette”, a special one-wheel chair carried by 2 assistants, (originally used for the disabled while trekking), Rome and Italy has made it possible to see these sites.

“Humanity is blessed with technology therefore there should be no limits to human capability” is a statement that best describes the reason for the creation and the importance of the “Joelette”. This special alternative wheelchair made in France was essential in helping Deogratius Chami (29), a student to be the first Tanzanian paraplegic to reach Uhuru peak, the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. This project titled “KILIHANDY” was organized by CHEMINDESSENS, a French NGO.

Paris and the Camino de Santiago (le Chemin de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle) | Press Review about the Joëlette | Scoop.it

In France, we are talking about paraplegics and quadriplegics who are placed in a special seat which has just one wheel underneath and two extended front handle bars and an extended rear handle bar requiring two able-bodied persons to keep it upright and moving – one in the front and one in the back.  More volunteers are needed for supply, support and cooking.  And there are relay teams who then take over, after a number of days.  This contraption is a French invention, called la Joëlette – named after its inventor: a mountaineer and guide called Joël Claudel for his disabled nephew.  See photo of a Joëlette in operation.

"I am like a lot of people, I want to live my live intensely. I should live either in my head, or with the physical means I have today. I feel sad when I see people doing nothing with their life, claiming to feel apathetic, because they may miss interesting things or ideas."

This is what Stéphane said, and without him the "Joëlette" and the Handi Cap Evasion Association would not exist today.
