After having sustained a spinal cord injury in a diving accident, Michael Kerr needed to find a new way of managing his bladder. With an ongoing international sports career he needed a flexible solution, easy to bring on his travels all over the world.
After a devastating jump into a swimming pool on his vacation trip in Greece, Michael Kerr injured his spine and came to understand that his paralysis came with consequences other than he could have imagined.
The vacation trip to Greece took a sudden turn when Michael dived into a swimming pool and hit his head on the bottom. He was badly injured but found an unexpected way back into living life.

In fact, problems with the bladder and bowel are commonly ranked as being bigger obstacles than an inability to walk.
