Ike

Ike is a boxer who’s paralyzed due to a narrowing of his vertebrae. Walkin’ Wheels recently developed this prototype chair for him so that he could continue to exercise despite his progressive paralysis by using his front legs with the assistance of four wheels. Ike regularly swims and gets massages as forms of physical therapy.
