high-level professional support
In 1986, Remo Semmler, with the intention of providing high-level professional support to people in need, decided to establish Roll Star.
The market success in Italian-speaking Switzerland has been rapid thanks to the principle of pursuing the maximum autonomy of each patient, as stated in our slogan: “because life is movement, and movement is freedom.” Since then, many things have changed, but our philosophy and spirit, which still form the foundation of our business activities, have remained unchanged.
For this reason, Roll-Star has been synonymous with quality and reliability for 30 years in providing consulting, sales, rental, and repair services for assistive devices in the rehabilitation and geriatric sectors, catering to both institutional and private clients.
Today, Roll Star is a renowned company that has its headquarters in Sementina and features a spacious showroom where assistive devices and products can be viewed and tested. From its initial specialization in wheelchairs and assistive means, Roll Star has successfully expanded its offerings by introducing new product lines, ranging from specialized furnishings to physiotherapy, from occupational therapy to patient management aids.
Our commitment to finding the most suitable materials, constant attention to advanced construction techniques, and close collaboration with leading industry partners enable us to provide reliable and secure solutions that always meet the expectations of the most demanding healthcare professionals.
Because life is movement and movement is freedom
Rehabilitation, a right for all
It is on this concept that our corporate philosophy has been founded since the very beginning. And with the same spirit, we aim to provide assistance to those in need, offering guidance on various existing aids, solutions to issues related to the products used, support with bureaucratic procedures, or even a simple advice for their unique and personal rehabilitation journey.
Disability, whether temporary or permanent, requires a redefinition of spaces and personal habits while fully respecting the individual. Therefore, the rehabilitation process becomes essential to develop personal potential and maintain residual functionality.
Sometimes it can be a tough and challenging journey, but it is essential to ensure maximum autonomy because life is movement and movement is freedom, as our slogan states.
For these reasons, rehabilitation must be a right for everyone, as inalienable as individual freedom.

Access to healthcare and the opportunity to pursue a rehabilitative path tailored to one’s needs should truly be a right for everyone. Often, it is the case, but unfortunately not always. In many contexts, far from our own country, it is not a right but merely a privilege reserved for a few.
We are aware that we cannot change everything, but we are equally aware that we can still do something. That is why we have decided to support several Swiss associations operating in countries where the level of healthcare is particularly low. Our support takes various forms, ranging from collecting second-hand wheelchairs and equipment to the development of specific projects for supplies and healthcare facilities in disadvantaged areas.
