Success Story- Niko

Niko is a dark-skinned man with short black hair and a beard. He is sitting in a reclined position in his power wheelchair on the sideline of a basketball court.

Niko and his family were referred to Oklahoma ABLE Tech by the Oklahoma Office of Disability Concerns. After a subdural hematoma and spinal injury required Niko to start using a wheelchair, Niko’s family needed a mobility van.

Niko’s family received a loan to purchase his mobility van through the Financial Loan Program at Oklahoma ABLE Tech,

Now, Niko enjoys the freedom he feels with an accessible vehicle, especially trips to the mall and basketball games. He is looking forward to going on a longer trip in the new van soon!
