Cambri has been held hostage in her home for most of her adult life. She is paralyzed and uses a wheelchair. So in an attempt to help her move on, her boyfriend Zach Nelson connected two electric bikes with a seat in the center. And it worked. Cambry said she experienced a whole new level of freedom with this vehicle. Not only could she overcome obstacles that previously seemed impossible, but she was able to travel for miles without pain in her shoulders.

Looking ahead, a year later, Cambry and Zach got married and began mass production of bicycles, which they call "Not a wheelchair."
