After a few months since my accident, I finally managed to return to the society. I learned to drive and gained back a large degree of independence and mobility. 
#

I began to share my experience with other patients, students and the community. By motivating others, I found a new meaning of my life, my existence on the earth. In 2014, three years after my accident, I was awarded the Top 10 Best Young Persons in Hong Kong. 
#

I should feel accomplished but I still felt that a part of me was missing... Climbing was my passion. Climbing was my profession. I really wanted to find out if I could still climb, with my disabilities.

On Dec 9, 2016, the 5th anniversary of my accident, I summitted the Lion Rock in Hong Kong purely using my upper body strength, which is 495 meter tall, higher than the Willis Tower in Chicago. I used 2 hours and 40 minutes to pull myself up a 100-meter cliff of the Lion Rock. 
I was so exhausted and my gloves went shattered. But, mentally, I felt so strong and accomplished. 
#

I got my question answered.

Can I climb again? It is never be a doubt again.

Do you you love to do. No matter what.

From a world-class athlete to a paraplegia, it’s not something easy for me to swallow... .

Looking back, my only desire for living was to see my newborn son, Gordon. When I had my accident, my wife was on her 7th month expecting Gordon. Gordon had become my motivation to live on.
.
I started to train myself in the bed using elastic bands in just about 14 days since the accident happened. My wish was that I could transfer myself from the bed to wheelchair and roll myself to the maternity ward to welcome Gordon once he was born. .

My wish came true.

Becoming a professional athlete had always been my dream.
.
.
My dream came true when I turned 20 and joined The Hong Kong Sport Climbing Team as a full-time rock climber in 2002. Since then, touring around the world for competition had become my life, a very desirable life.
.
.
After years of hard work, when I was enjoying my glory as the world number 8 climber, I met a car accident that changed my life forever... .
.
That was the night of Dec 9, 2011, which I will never forget. I was only 28 years old...

Hi, I'm Chi-Wai, Permobil ambassador in Asia. My story began when I was once the 8th-ranked rock climber in the world (and first Chinese to win the X-Games) met with a car accident that left me paraplegic in 2011. 
Dubbed as Spiderman by the media, I succumbed not to misery, but continued to pursue my dream. On the 5th Anniversary of my tragic accident, I climbed up the Lion Rock with my Tilite wheelchair, solely relying on my upper limbs and will power.

I am an advocate for spine surgery patients, realizing the power of optimism in influencing and impacting the life of others. I aspire to someday be able to walk again.
Happy to loose a customer. This is Kjell Eidsli, speaking at a spinal injury conference today. He is telling his story -from completely paralyzed to be able to walk again, a touching story. Kjell is sitting to the right on the picture, looking up at the movie where he is driving his c500, at that time he said to himself he was going to walk before the grandchild who is sitting at his lap, - and he made it. If I have sold him a car, I would have been a little bit disappointed if he sold it after 6 months, I sold him a wheelchair - he does not use it anymore, and I think that’s just fine. #permobil #ragnaratwork  #sci #training #trondheim
Nordic November sun. Red coloured light and long shadows. The old harbor store houses in Trondheim suits this light very well. Life is sometimes enjoyed best elevated, and tilted forward. Permobil F3 have 30cm seat elevator, and up to 20 degrees active tilt. #permobil  #activereach  #activeheightadjust #ragnaratwork #permobilf3 #bybroentrondheim
A salute to customization. To make a wheelchair made only by standard components and accessories is a satisfaction itself. But sometimes we have to make something special, for a special need. An armrest that  angles outward when lifted, are easy to lift and stands in every position you leave it. Sounds easy- but it’s not. Due to this mechanism Tormod can do his transfer himself, get clothed and generally have a independent life- like the rest of us. Thanks to “Anpasningen in Timrå”, Permobils customization plant.  #permobil  #ragnaratwork #permobilcustom #armrest #custommade  #independent
«Anonymous tourist». In front of the 13.century cathedral Nidarosdomen in Trondheim. Permobil F3.  30cm seat elevator does not help much in this case, but sure do 50 degrees of seat tilt. Lay back- just relax, and enjoy the west front of the cathedral, made in stone, by hand. Sustainable, like what we want a wheelchair to be. #permobil #ragnaratwork #permobilf3 #nidarosdomen #activereach  #activeheightadjust  #anteriortilt #trondheim
I agree, shot an indoor photo of a Permobil x850. But basically this is not a picture of a wheelchair, its a picture of Merethe. She got her new x850 today. Merethe has used various kinds of Permobil wheelchairs since the age of 8 years, if I remember correctly. Merethe represents hereby the many users who have shown loyalty to us over years, always asked for our products. I feel privileged to work for such people. #permobil #permobilx850  #ragnaratwork  #outdoorwheelchair #loyal #loyalty
Today Hilde got her new c500, and by that joined the Permobil Deep Purple Fan Club. Hilde loves to weave, and before we left she wanted to show us her last product- a tablecloth. And the colour? You dont have to guess. I asked her how many hours it would take to make it, silly me. Hours have no intetest in this matter, what counts are the satisfaction one gets from producing, being creative,  and the happiness gained when other people admire this beautiful product. #permobil #c500  #weave #deeppurple  #ragnaratwork
Sales Manager Steinar Sæle opens the norwegian ROHO kick-off by telling local jokes from the west coast. #permobil #norwegianhumor  #ragnaratwork #roho #oslo  #kickoff2018
DEEP PURPLE. No one chose deep purple by accident.You do, if you are a woman with distinct opinion about colours, or a man with an affection to a spesific 1970- heavy metal band. Karen, wich I belive fits into that first group, got her new permobil today. A chair wich beautifully fits into her tastefully coloured flat. I love to deliver chairs wich fits in, just complements what already are present. #permobil #permobilcorpus #deeppurple  #lilla  #violet  #wheelchair  #wheelchairs
