Wheely just about every step at any family members house { down not up } and at my house as well. Transfer from the ground to my chair. Climb my daughters play ground and tried to swing the other day but when I did I lifted my feet so she could push me & I flipped backwards as my ass fell off of the swing HAHA. In therapt I also am starting to walk with a walker and braces to lock my knees [Kfaos ] . I drive a full sized pickup truck. Made some adjustments to my fishing boat and can transfer in and out of my boat to go fishing. We can do anything anybody else can just with a little more effort.
    You are an over achiever as I was. It is great to do it all...until it catches up to you. I strongly urge you to click the S.O.S. link below and read the manual on preserving upper limb function for the long haul.

    Many things are possible but not necessarily wise to do. Click on my personal website link below and you will find a photo of this C-7 complete quad in parallel bars with just kafos, and I could do a swing-to gate back and forth, which is sort of like hopping. I am paying for it now.

    Yeah, I know what you are saying but I am more interested in his using a walker. As a T8 with a good amount of upper body strength I wasn't aware such a thing was possible. Would love to see a youtube video of it.
