In 2003 Niki broke her neck as a passenger in car accident which caused a spinal cord injury at C6 resulting in quadriplegia.
Since then she has worked hard & done her best to stay active and healthy, but without the right kind of equipment or therapy, keeping her legs moving has not been
an easy task.
Wheels With Wings awarded Niki with a grant for a FES (Functional Electric Stimulation) bike. This bike provides stimulation to the muscles as you peddle, strengthening muscles & preventing further atrophy.
“Thanks to the grant received from Wheels With Wings, I get to keep my legs moving! I have more energy, my spasms are less frequent, and my transfers are easier.
It’s an amazing feeling!”
