A Quickie Life Story: Cpl. Kevin Stone, U.S. Army, Ret.

A Quickie Life Story: Cpl. Kevin Stone, U.S. Army, Ret.

While on active duty Kevin was a passenger in a motor vehicle accident in which the vehicle dropped over 140 feet off the side of a mountain after the soldier who was driving failed to negotiate a turn. Kevin sustained an incomplete spinal injury in his cervical spine resulting in quadriplegia. Kevin was a dedicated athlete prior to his injury, so after he retired from the Army he sought out other sports as an outlet. Kevin became a very successful archer, competing in both the 2004 and 2008 Paralympics. In fact, Kevin won the United States its first medal in archery at the 2004 games in Athens.

Discussing the portability and transport options of a wheelchair and seating system is an integral part of the early stages of the evaluation process.
