A new rehabilitation therapy system was unveiled Tuesday at the Don Wheaton Family YMCA.

Bryce Clarke, an Edmonton police homicide detective and quadriplegic, was there to help showcase and demonstrate the new equipment, donated by the Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Center Society (Northern Alberta).

Clarke suffered an accident at home in 2001 that broke his C5 and C6 vertebrae. Told he would never work again, he proved his doctors wrong.

He went on to do undercover work with the gang unit and joined the historical homicide unit in 2010.

He shared his story with CBC videographer Patrick Knowles.
