Johnny Beer

Cybathlete

Breaking his neck following a failed back flip attempt, Johnny's life was turned upside down at the age of 16. After losing 85% of his body movement, it became apparent that due to paralysis, recovery would not be an easy task. To this day he has made significant progress despite the scarcity of post injury support and consequent financial difficulties.

Johnny aspires to make a full recovery and simply refuses to give up. He believes Electrical Stimulation is the key to solving  Spinal Cord Injury (SCI); not for just him but for everybody past, present and future. With a combination of technology and willpower he wishes to guide others in the right direction.

The possibility of overcoming Spinal Cord Injury for everyone living with the condition (without health risks) is what Johnny wants. With new found knowledge from computing, vigorous physical training and continuous alternative therapies. He is  raising awareness of SCI by competing in various competitions. Johnny's aim is to achieve success, raise funds, and accelerate Scientific research to finally solve Spinal Cord Injury.

Cybathlete Sponsorship

Johnny is looking for Sponsors for upcoming events to help fund the high costs of training and preparation. If you would like to speak with him you can do so here.

Previous Donations

Over the years, Johnny has had various support from different Charities to help fund new equipment and alternative therapies. Without them, he would not be where he is today and this is a reminder that there is a safety net, but you have to seek it. Friends and family have also organised fundraisers, SCI is one of the most expensive disabilities.
