After captivating the public in the artistic installation "Exografías" by Amaia Vicente in the exhibition "Máquinas de ingenio. Jakintzen bidegurutzean" at TABAKALERA, we are excited to announce our outstanding participation in the documentary film "Javi y la Montaña". This epic production of the Urbegi Foundation narrates the incredible odyssey of Javier López Pagazaurtundua towards Everest base camp, guided by the experienced mountaineer Alex Txikon. In this inspiring tale of self-improvement and friendship, our HANK ambulatory exoskeleton for lower limbs stands as a true hero, transforming Javier's life and taking him to heights never before imagined.
The Journey of a Champion: Javier López
It all began when Javier, a brave young man from Zallora with cerebral palsy, was honoured with the "Lo Imposible 2022 Award" by the Urbegi Foundation. His challenge: to conquer Everest base camp, more than 5,000 metres above sea level. But this would not be a solitary journey.
The alliance between Javier and the renowned mountaineer Alex Txikon marked the beginning of a journey full of determination, friendship and amazing challenges. Together, they faced gruelling days, covered challenging kilometres and braved extreme conditions, proving that will and courage can overcome any obstacle.
Gogoa Mobility Robots and Movex Clinics: Transformation in Action
At our state-of-the-art robotic neurorehabilitation clinics, Movex Clinics, together with a dedicated team of physiotherapists, engineers and medical professionals, we deployed our HANK exoskeleton to enhance Javier's endurance, gain muscle mass and perfect his gait pattern. A success story that highlights the transformative power of technology in the process of self-improvement.

"Javi y la Montaña" is more than just a film; it is a vivid testimony of resilience, self-improvement and unwavering friendship. Captured over more than a year, the documentary reveals every moment, from the first days of preparation to the majesty of the Himalayas.
