Buying a Bowling Ball, Advice for IKAN Bowler® Users

Many IKAN Bowler® users ask me about what they should look for in a bowling ball. First off, 16 pounds is the maximum weight a ball can be (I believe) and that’s what IKAN Bowler® users need, because a heavier ball will impact the pins with more force than a lighter ball will (since the […]

Two IKAN Bowler® Users Enter the 200 Club Nine Days Apart

Jesse Collens and Zak Schmoll have not met, and yet they have an interesting connection. They are both wheelchair users who recently joined the “200 Club” for dynamic wheelchair bowling with an IKAN Bowler®. But how they did so is eerily similar… On February 9, 2017, Jesse, bowling in the Northwest US (Washington state) bowled […]

Vent-Dependent Quadriplegic Bowls 21st 200+ Game

Many wheelchair users are not aware that a relatively new device exists that enables even people paralyzed from the neck down (like me) to bowl in a way that mimics the able-bodied bowling process.  The IKAN (“I can”) Bowler® attaches to one’s wheelchair and allows its user to setup, and then physically approach and release […]

VIDEO: I Can–The Bill Miller Story

A graduate student at the University of Florida, Belinda Post, asked if she could do a video story on me and our efforts to get wheelchair users (back) in the game of life, especially power wheelchair users.  I agreed, although for several months my voice has been unusually soft, so I’m hard to hear in […]

Steve Kettenhoven enters 200 Club — AND sets CP record!

On February 6th, I “introduced” myself (via email) to Steve Kettenhoven, a Wisconsin man who was awaiting delivery of his IKAN Bowler.
