JOHNNY BEER TIMMS – COMPLETE TRANSVERSE LESION (C5)
“In 2011, I had a trampoline accident due to a failed back somersault. The result was a complete transverse lesion, so I could no longer move my arms and legs. Meanwhile, I can move some of my arms a little more. My hands don’t work anymore and this causes many problems.
My interest in controling muscles through electrical stimulation brought me in touch with BerkelBike. This amazing bike with electric stimulation lets me cycle again with the muscles in my arms and legs. I can’t move my legs, this is true, but this keeps me fit. I am even building up new muscle tissue! Personally, I believe that staying fit is extremely important for patients with a spinal cord injury. “
