About the Initiative

"Small steps to a great journey" is an international initiative enabling People of Determination to walk-cross distances from Abu Dhabi, UAE to Istanbul, Turkey, Zagreb, Croatia, and concluding in Zurich, Switzerland.

People of Determination across the four cities will be using Hocoma's Lokomat to stand up and walk, some for the very first time. As they walk, we'll be monitoring their steps and distance. The participants collectively will be encouraged to walk the distance of travel between each city and complete a virtual journey.

During the memorable journey, the participants will be sharing their inspirational and courageous stories with you - keep an eye on this space.
