Johnny Beer Timms – SCI – Tetraplegia (C4 / C5)
” In 2011, I had a trampoline accident after a failed backward somersault. The result was a complete transverse lesion, so I could no longer move my arms and legs. After leaving the hospital, I can now move parts of my arms a little more. My hands do not work properly anymore and this causes me many problems.
My interest in working muscles using led me to the BerkelBike. This amazing bike allows me to cycle again, using the muscles in my arms and legs. The electrical stimulation allows my paralysed muscles to move and helps keep me fit and healthy. I have even built new muscle tissue! Personally, I believe that staying fit is extremely important for patients with tetraplegia.”
