I am a wheelchair jockey as a result of transverse myelitis in 1998. The first wheelchair delivered to me weighed in at 96lbs! I was working full time and coaching 3 little league teams at the time. Not a particularly workable solution. That began my interest in wheeled mobility. I formally entered the rehab industry in 2003. I have experienced pretty much every position in the industry as both a provider and as a consumer.
