I’ve mentioned Jon Musgrave in some previous blog entries. Jon is the world record holder for bowling by a quadriplegic/power wheelchair user. When he got an IKAN Bowler, he bowled 3-5 days per week for more than a year, and wrote: "Who could have thought that one thing could change a person’s life so much. I have something that I’m good at to look forward to enjoying every day; something I can share with my family and friends. I can tell you this for sure, my life has not been the same since I got my IKAN Bowler®."
