Davion Resal was injured in a serious work accident November 2013. He had damage to his spinal cord at the level of S1, and doctors told him he may never walk again. He began his journey of rehabilitation with us at Aim2Walk Spring of 2014, and he’s been making the steps possible to regaining his mobility and function of his legs. Recently Davion has learned to walk with a 4 point walker and AFO’s (ankle foot orthotics) as well as standing up using his leg muscles rather then pulling himself up with his arms. Less then a year ago I posted a video of Davion re-learning to crawl and he is extremely happy to have graduated to standing and taking steps. The recovery process for SCI can be long and tough but with the dedication Davion has, training at least 5 days a week, he has made great gains already.
Take a peek at the Latest video of Davion’s progress.
*Davion loves sports, specifically basketball and he’s been looking into getting tickets to a Raptors game. Unfortunately, Davion would need wheelchair accessible seating, and it seems to be more challenging to find good seats which are affordable at the Air Canada Centre. Perhaps the Raptors would be interested in donating tickets so Davion can see a game? #WeTheNorth
