Claire Lomas MBE

Claire’s promising career in eventing was cut short by an accident which left her paralysed from the chest down. Following a gruelling period of mentally and physically coming to terms with her new life, she refused to be defined by what she could no longer do. With the aid of a ReWalk exoskeleton she took on the London Marathon, completing the course in 17 days.

It was the first of many charity challenges which have included a 400-mile hand-cycle and gaining her racing motorbike licence. Claire talks about the resilience, passion and mindset that has seen her achieve incredible things, as well as the technology that has helped her along the way.
