Our story


ACTIVEBASE has resulted from the work and ideas of two friends:

Olivier HUGOU, who is passionate about biomechanics and Guilbaut COLAS, an elite skier, 2011 world moguls champion and winner of Overall World Cup crystal globe.

In 2013, Guilbaut was injured skiing in the Sochi Olympic Games qualifiers. Despite his disappointment at missing the Olympics, he put all his effort into physio and conditioning in a rehabilitation program during which Olivier regularly came to visit. From observing the rehabilitation sessions (especially with a medicine-ball while limited in his movements…) and their discussions, Olivier came up with the idea of a chair which would allow the lower and upper limbs to work out in a sitting position in order to help his friend to recover faster.

The first ACTIVEBASE prototype came to life in Olivier’s garage and was tested in real conditions by Guilbaut, who was won over as soon as he tried it… the ACTIVEBASE adventure was underway!

This first prototype underwent several improvements and patents were filed. The ACTIVEBASE was then entered for the Lépine Competition, which it won in 2014!
