Mike Murach has upped the record he set in February, and I have a feeling he is not done! (Big smile)
For now, the bowling record for a wheelchair user driving by head array is 182. You can see his scoresheet and learn more here:
Mike is paralyzed from his shoulders down roughly, and specific movements of his head are what allow him to control his wheelchair. Adding the IKAN Bowler® to his chair allows him to bowl.
This just helps to illustrate the fact that it does not matter what one’s reason for wheelchair use is (SCI, MD, CP, ALS, etc.) or the method by which the user controls his or her wheelchair (head array, joystick, chin control, sip-and-puff, etc.) bowling is still a sport or recreational activity that essentially all wheelchair users can enjoy and compete at.
Good bowling Mike – keep it up! 🙂
