Reyes has a very promising future in the sport and his ultimate dream is to make the team for the Olympic Games in 2020. Reyes is using the Masimo MightySat every morning and before each training session to ensure his body is ready for the demands he is placing on it.
“I train very, very hard and ever since I lost my leg, my desire and dedication to training has risen exponentially. The Masimo MightySat data is guiding me in my training and recovery process on my road to the Paralympic Games in 2020, where I hope to be competing in my beloved sport of triathlon.”
Amateur Para-Triathlete dreaming for the Paralympic Games in 2020
Sean Culp at the young age of 30 had everything going for him – great job, nice home, beautiful girlfriend, loving family and plans for an amazing future. A graduate of Oklahoma University, Sean was an award winner for the University of Oklahoma Cross Country and Track and Field team from 1997-2002.
Sean’s zest for life is evident in everything he does. It is because of his passion for everything he commits to that he makes friends everywhere he goes. He has an amazing personality that draws you in and makes you want to cheer for him. He exudes a warmth that not everyone has because you have to be born with it – you cannot learn it, you cannot teach it – it is true charisma.
On April 10, 2008, life as he knew it would change dramatically when he was riding home on his motorcycle from just another regular night out with a couple of friends. Sean never made it home that night. In fact, he didn’t make it home for several months because something caused him to lose control of his motorcycle. He doesn’t remember what transpired and is grateful for that because what his body went through was horrific. To say he is lucky to be alive is an understatement.
When Sean headed home that fateful night, it was April. When he woke up what he thought was the next day, it was actually June. He learned that he had flown 210 feet in the air, laid on the ground for about 30 minutes and didn’t reach the hospital until 65 minutes after the accident. In the first 7 hours, the hospital pumped 30 units of blood into him because his massive injuries could not be stopped quickly enough to keep him from bleeding out. To put this in perspective, the human body normally holds 10 units of blood.
Sean underwent approximately 30 surgeries and the only two organs not directly damaged from the accident were his brain and his heart though his heart did incur some damage due to his time in a coma. He also has suffered some permanent memory loss.
Unbeknownst to Sean, his health struggles continued as 2 weeks after the accident, MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections, caused him to lose his right leg. It was his leg or his life.
To understand the full extent of what Sean’s body endured and to understand what Sean had to recover from to get back to the healthy state he now boasts, below is an estimated list of damages from the accident:
Right leg broken in 3 spots, missing 4 inches of his femur, ended up being amputated.
Right arm broken in 3 locations, now a 6-inch titanium rod with 9 screws. Elbow still can’t bend due to bone growth forming between the bones.
Broke both sides of his pelvis in multiple spots.
Broke 5 ribs.
3 holes in his bladder.
3 holes in his stomach.
Lost 1/3 of his small intestine, large intestine, and colon.
Tore his liver in half (they super glued it back together).
Lost 68 pounds!
Once released from the hospital, Sean spent 1 month in-house therapy learning how to walk with a walker, gaining strength, and supporting himself. Upon release, outpatient rehab continued for 6 more months.
Sean should not be alive. Not only should he not be alive, he should not be walking. And anyone who knows Sean or who has even met him briefly knows that he is very much alive. He doesn’t let the fact that he has one leg slow him down. His exercise regimen is extraordinarily challenging – not for someone with a handicap but for anyone with all perfectly working limbs. He is a goal oriented, ambitious, and driven individual who is training to race in an upcoming triathlon.
Sean currently lives an active lifestyle in California and works as a mechanical engineer. He maintains a positive attitude in every aspect of his life.
Sean Culp is an inspiration to anyone who knows him or learns of him and his triumphs. The trials and tribulations he has overcome to not only survive a tragic accident that ended up taking his leg but, also to do so in a way that brings hope and motivation to others is extraordinary.
“I believe the MightySat is going to be a game changer in the Sports Technology arena. Right now, it is still a secret used by some, but the more people I explain this mighty device to, the more people that are blown away by it’s capabilities. I can not believe I finally have a tool to accurately measure my daily [...] Read More >
The Masimo MightySat enhances every avenue of my life. As an athlete, I will be able to record the ‘free’ data that my body is telling me before, during, and after a workout and improve my training and recovery sessions. As a college student studying exercise science/ physical education, I will be able to bring a topic of conversation to the University of North Georgia’s campus and use ingenuity for a senior thesis. As a soldier, I will be able use my passion of coaching others to improve my unit’s physical readiness for their upcoming deployment.
I am very excited to use the Masimo MightySat product because of my love for data combined with my passion to be a leader in athletics!
“I started training a couple of years ago with my father who also raced motocross achieving 3rd in the world, 3rd in the MX nationals and won multiple supercross events. He introduced me to his way of training, which utilizes a standard heart monitor. This seems to work well, but as my level of training increased, I found myself sometimes [...] Read More >
I started training a couple of years ago with my father who also raced motocross achieving 3rd in the world, 3rd in the MX nationals and won multiple supercross events. He introduced me to his way of training, which utilizes a standard heart monitor. This seems to work well, but as my level of training increased, I found myself sometimes getting very tired. I came across the MightySat and this is where my next level of training was born. I now utilize five levels of monitoring, blood oxygen saturation, pulse rate, perfusion index, pleth variability index and respiration rate.
Working with the MightySat has given me a new level of insight on how well my body is working and recovering. I have found in my training that it’s not how much you train or where you train but the level of intensity that matters and higher intensity only comes with optimum recovery. The future is here and that’s why I use the MightySat.
