Omer, 35, was born and raised in Rosh Pina. Omer's father is paralyzed as a result of an injury while fighting in the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Despite his father’s being in a wheelchair, the family would always spend time on family trips exploring nature in cars\ATVs. After a meaningful service in the IDF as a commander in the infantry, Omer got the travelling bug, and ended up traveling to 17 countries around the world. On the top of a mountain in Tibet Omer realized that this was something his father would love and decided then and there to figure out how to make it happen. Back home, a moment Omer will never forget was when his father asked, "How are we going to trek there!?" and Omer replied "No problem, we’ll carry you on a stretcher" to which his father, insulted, said: "What do you think I am? A potato sack!?" That moment changed everything. Omer set out to find a solution and developed the Trekker, an all-terrain wheelchair. The trek was a huge success, and instilled in Omer the belief that the impossible is absolutely possible. Omer founded Paratrek, a company that specializes in finding solutions for people with disabilities to enable them to enjoy nature with groups of people with and without disabilities. It is crucial for Omer that the focus be on the group of people traveling together, and NOT on the disabled or the disability. Inclusion is about changing people's perspective and eliminating prejudice. Paratrek also carries out R&D for assistive technology to support hiking for the physically impaired.
