Multifunctional verticalizer


Designed by Ponomarev K. Z.

"Katyusha" is a multifunctional verticalizer which helps people with disabilities either to learn to keep their balance and to restore their ability to keep their center of gravity. The name came out spontaneously, so it was named by an instructor for the verticalizer ability to slip.

"Katyusha" - verticalizer for skiing, skating, rollerblading for people with disabilities.

I first saw a Paraolympic alpine skier in Italy in the Alps in 1990.

A man sitting in a chair attached to a mono ski slipped past me at great speed.

Then I thought, well done! With such a competitive spirit inside, nothing and no disease can stop him…

Since the post-war years, the end of the 40s, the direction of technology, sports, medicine, devices and methods of their use, allowing people with disabilities to improve their health, learn new positive emotions and feelings, is actively developing around the world. Many of these products have led to the emergence of new Paralympic sports.


The program «Katyusha-Ordinary Miracle» was born in 2015 within the walls of the all Russian State Olympic Committee «SNEZHKOM», Krasnogorsk. During this period, only in «Snezhkom» more than 9000 hours of training were held with people with disabilities. The very design of «Katyusha» has undergone many changes. More than 20 different models were created, as well as more auxiliary equipment and various devices. There were articles, certificates and patents. The work is still ongoing.
