I found a link to a longer video of more of his tricks on the Colours Wheelchair website, too -- thanks for sharing this clip -- really amazing stuff!

If this is the same company that I am thinking of, they used to be based in Anaheim and I used to work next door to them ( 7 years ago or so). The owner was an amazing guy. Really cool and down to earth. Im glad that his company is doing so well! Truly amazing what a person can do no matter what obstacles get in their way!

It is amazing what they are doing...

Longevity-wise, the compression forces on the intervertebral discs are just as impressive, I'm sure.

I personally would choose to become a pull-up monster and "road racer" if I was in a wheelchair.

To each their own.:happy:

Here's an impressive demonstration of fitness against the odds.

The best way I can describe this is wheelchair parkour. Link to video of Aaron Fotheringham doing wheelchair stunts in a skate park and in community IS BOTH WORK AND FAMILY FRIENDLY. How hard would a back flip be if you were in a wheelchair?
