Mark is exploring the possibilities of recovery, with his own body as a research subject, as he uses therapies, technologies and products that sit outside the traditional acute and rehabilitation system. He is walking in an Ekso Bionics robotic suit, following an aggressive physical therapy programme and cycling on a functional electrical stimulation bike.
However, he knows that finding a cure for catastrophic spinal cord injuries won’t happen in isolation. It is a human crisis requiring collaboration and co-ordination across geographical, organisational and intellectual boundaries. So, he is collaborating with scientists, technologists and physiologists around the world with the aim of mainstreaming what is currently on the fringes.
