Taking risks and living life to the extreme hasn't changed for Trevor Snowden. The only difference - he's doing it in a wheelchair.
"In a lot of aspects, the life I led as an able bodied person, being fast, wild, obnoxious -- I became humbled," Snowden explained.
Snowden was a hot-shot snowboarder until he got injured during a competition in 1997.
"I overshot my landing and I broke my T12 vertebrae," Snowden said.
He suddenly found himself paralyzed from the waist down. As someone who lived without limits, he wasn't happy with any wheelchairs on the market.
"There's no freedom in it, most of the products that exist," Snowden said.
So he invented Trevair, a lightweight manual wheelchair with suspension. For the more daring, he also made an add-on electric scooter with a throttle.
