Nicki became the first Police Officer in the UK to be gifted a miracle technology that enables spinal cord injured victims the chance to walk again wearing a wearable Robotic Exoskelton.
She was the first in the world to walk in 7 hours and under 7 weeks.
Nicki shared her first live walk with her daughter on her tenth birthday at the inaugural race of Parallel London ,September 2016. Nicki walked 1k without her trainer holding her proudly with her daughter. It took her 45 minutes. Since then Nicki has become Parallel London Ambassador.
In October 2016 , Nicki was ready to share her journey at the Birmingham Run,half Marathon race of Great Run Races. This was special for her as she Policed the streets of Birmingham. To complete the race with thousands of supporters which included her former police colleagues who cheered her on to support her raising awareness for injured Police Officers welfare, a campaign she supports for,called Protect the Protectors founded by Police Federation of UK.
It took Nicki 2 hours 30 minutes to complete the distance of 2.5k with her daughter. In recognition of her determination to walk in the Exoskeleton in the cold and rain, both received the half marathon medals from other racers.
2016-Nicki was invited to Munich for the first time at a Business Investors and Tech Founders Festival, organised by the company called Bits and Pretzels. Nicki was the first paralysed VIP Influential Speaker invited to talk live, standing and walking wearing a robotic suit in front of 40 thousand viewers.
Unfortunately in January 2017 . Following Nickis joints suffering from bruisng,dislocations and fractures due to weight bearing Nicki was persistent to not give up her chance to walk again something which she never thought would happen to a paralysed person. Nicki then found out she could no longer use the robotic suit due to a life threatening heart condition was confirmed .This was was a contraindication health condition that proved Nicki was medically a high risk candidate that was not suitable to use any standing frames and exoskeletons. Should she continued to use these devices she was risking her own life to do so. Nickis final time with her device was when she collapsed and had to be resuscitated , she had no choice but to no longer use the Rewalk device. The hardest decision was given her robotic legs away , they were donated to another person who was suitable to use the device. Nicki found comfort the $100k exoskeleton would benefit another spinal cord injured person which would help the quality of that persons life and of the familys.
