Meet Claire Lomas – Our 1st Omobic Ambassador

Claire had a career as a chiropractor and she had just reached the highest level in the sport of eventing, when a collision with a tree in 2007 left her with catastrophic injuries. She dislocated her spine, fractured her neck and ribs, punctured a lung and was fighting for her life in intensive care.  The dislocation resulted in severe spinal cord damage and Claire became paralysed from the chest down.

Her life changed in a split second. She went from an active sportswomen whose dreams were coming true and goals were set high, to a life of huge daily obstacles which ever direction she turned. The simplest of tasks were now hugely challenging.  As well as losing the use of two-thirds of her body, she was forced to say good-bye to her sport, her career and then her personal relationship ended too. Claire felt at rock bottom; both her confidence and self-esteem were at an all time low.

Not many months after her accident, Claire started to work again, albeit very different to what she used to do, and gradually, bit by bit she pieced her life back together.  In 2012, Claire made headline news all over the world as she walked the London Marathon in a pioneering robotic suit. It took a gruelling 17 days and raised a staggering £220k for charity.  The following year, Claire completed a 400 mile handcycle around England, visiting schools on the way to teach hundreds of pupils some valuable life lessons, raising another £85k for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation.

As of today she has now raised over £850,000 for charity through various challenges and was awarded an MBE in 2017 for charitable and voluntary services to Spinal Injury Research.

She is married to Dan who she met just a year after her accident, has two daughters, is the author of two books, has spoken at hundreds of events worldwide and has become a highly thought of female motivational speaker.

Claire is constantly challenging her limits. She has not let her disability define her but it has certainly redefined her.  She has achieved some unimaginable feats and consequently inspired people all over the world. That’s why we are honoured and proud to have Claire as our first OMOBIC ambassador.

Claire does not believe the sky is the limit, and neither do we!
