Thread: Is this guy for real?

    Is this guy for real?

    Check out his youtube video. I am not sure but I think he doesn't have a problem walking.

    Any one else care to comment?

    What makes you say that? Just looks like a very able para. Although putting a shower vid on youtube is a bit weird

    hmmm... legs developed.. terrible transfer personally.
    I wouldnt want to backup as thats always a great way to end up with your head in the nightstand.

    With a bed any level i sit on it first, then move your legs over.

    Has very developed legs..

    Watched the getting up.. Puts his socks on the hard way.
    Does a lean on the wall when he sits on the side of the bed.
    Still dont like the way he is doing stuff.

    Do I need to do a video? I'd probably freak way to many people out.

    Didnt care to watch the shower scene.

    My legs look like that but that is spasm related. He looks pretty flaccid so not sure how they stay like that. Could just be inc

    Have you seen Zupan in Murderball? He looks as developed and able as that and he's an inc quad

    I'm too used to my own body and scrawny legs. One of the things I tend to look at on anyone in a chair is the legs.

    Could be he just hasn't been injurd long, but the tone..

    I don't havy friends in chairs realy, so I can't compare what I know with what I dont.

    Needs to work on the transfers! doin socks the hard way! Getting dressed on the side of the bed, if he leans often, setting himself up for a fall. Just sit in bed and do it, or wait until your in the chair.

    Then again I learned the hardway. My rehab 30 years ago was an old folks home in Austin. I know nothing but what I picked up at the school of Hard Knocks..

    I think he likes doing things the hard way? In the time it took to watch this I probably could have done the same twice if not more....Jump into bed w/pants on, then roll on back with knees up to get pants off. Transferring feet first seems a pain, 2 motions needed for the legs, then transfer. If you transfer ass first then grab your legs you are already 1/2 way into the taking the pants off step. Socks always in the chair so you can fold your leg over on top of your knee. He does make that Chrysler minivan interesting, I'm likeing the idea of not taking the chair apart...but no brakes, beyond my comfort level (or level ground level also)

    The guy seemed to lift his legs very easily...as muscly as they look, they must be heavy.
    So, if he is sci, I'd assume he was incomplete.

    Eeks, so his transfers look bad to everyone? Mine are worse.

    And if you saw how I got into/out of bed you'd say the same thing...BUT I have a h*ll of a time with walking....

    You also can't judge b/c of his leg muscles, who knows he may use an FES bike or have bad spasms that keep his legs toned...

    If you watch how much he had to struggle to keep his legs from falling off the bed when he was getting in, you might not be so quick to judge...watch it again and look at how many times his legs didn't co-operate with what he was trying to do once he was on the bed....

    I've never seen a fes bike, and I've never met anyone who uses one.
    Do they really keep your legs in that good of shape?

    I'm trying not to judge, but it's just that I have just never seen it before.

    I finally watched the 'shower' scene. Had to wait until I got home. Not really something I want to watch at work, and then having to explain to my wife why I'm watching someguy undress was unerving to say the least.

    Cant make up for my past, but if thats what FES and other things can do, keep doing it.
