- Team Elay- Running Simulator
Elay Chayot, 21. Born and raised in Corazim in Northern Israel. Since his childhood, Elay has been a professional athlete. He won several medals in different competitions.
Even though he had an option to be considered as an athlete in his military service, he chose to volunteer in an elite combat unit. During training, he was severely injured in his spinal cord. For 2 weeks Elay was sedated. Since his injury, he is going through intensive rehabilitation in order to get back on his feet and function.
Challenge: To run
As a former athlete, Elay loved running. Even with his intensive rehabilitation, he is far from being able to run. He is looking for an experience, based on VR (virtual reality), that will retrieve his ability to feel like running.
