Jeremy Renner, the Marvel star, is making significant progress in his recovery from the snowplow accident that occurred on New Year’s Day. Nearly three months after the accident, Renner shared a video on Sunday, showing himself taking steps on an anti-gravity treadmill, as part of his physical therapy. The actor explained that the equipment allows him to feel “less weight,” enabling him to walk with support. The anti-gravity treadmill technology is used for weight-supported movements, helping rehab clients recover from injuries or surgeries, build strength and endurance, and manage chronic health conditions.
Renner’s accident occurred as he tried to prevent the snowplow from hitting his nephew, resulting in over 30 broken bones. He was airlifted to a local medical center near his Nevada home, where he underwent emergency surgery for his injuries, which included blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries, as stated by his representative at the time.
Renner is currently recuperating at home, and his progress is steady. In February, the Mayor of Kingstown star shared photos of himself using a stationary bike and stated that he was working on his “mental recovery too” in the aftermath of the accident. Renner tweeted on Sunday that he must find other ways to occupy his time so that his body can continue to recover from his will, using the hashtags #Mindful, #Intended, and #Recovery.
