Reports say that presently there are over 2.7 million wheelchair users in the United States. For them, being confined to a very limited amount of independent movement is a given. But things might change drastically with this new device invented by a determined husband, for his paralyzed wife.
For much of her adult life, Cambry was restricted to the pavement. She had to move around in a wheelchair as she is paralyzed. Therefore, to make it possible for her to get more experiences and travel to more places, Zack Nelson, her then-boyfriend, made a new device by fixing a seat in the middle of two electric bikes, and it worked. Cambry stated that due to this device, she could experience freedom like never before. Not only that, but she could also do things that previously seemed impossible, and travel miles without getting sore shoulders, which is remarkable.
