Robert Vogel Making it easier… to enjoy time together



Bob was an extreme sportsman, professional freestyle snow skier and stunt man. It was more than 30 years ago, when Bob severely injured his spinal cord in an accident. Today, he still pursues hobbies which challenge him physically and he is passionate about off-road hand-cycling, swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving.

But more than anything, Bob loves being a dad. He always wanted to have children, as he thinks that nothing compares to being a parent. He does, however, remember the concerns he had about being spinal cord injured and a parent at the same time: Would he be able to keep up with his daughter? Would he be able to be the dad that he wants to be?

Bob’s bowel program used to be a major concern in life. Today, he regularly uses TAI treatment, which gives him much more control. It also enables him to focus on the person in life that matters most to him: “My daughter is busy with school and friends these days, but we’re still close. And when we have time together, we make the most of it,” says Bob.
