Josh Dueck Inspires Wheelchair Users to
Transcend Their Disability Through Proper Positioning
At 23 years old, as coach of the Silver Star Freestyle Ski Club in Vernon, B.C., Josh Dueck dislocated his back and severed his spinal cord doing a demonstration jump for his students. Nine months after his fall, he was back on a ski hill riding a sit ski…Now a world champion, and Paralympic Gold Medalist.
Before he got back on the mountain he did a lot of thinking about how he could make his equipment truly connect with his body so that he could ski the way he skied before. This is his story about Bodypoint products and how they have helped transcend his disability using proper positioning.
