Kwan established Enable Exercise in 2017 after recognising a need for a neurological rehabilitation service which provides an intensive exercise based rehabilitation for people with neurological disabilities. Before developing Enable Exercise’s program in 2017, Kwan worked at a neurological rehabilitation program, working with a range of neurological conditions such as spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke and others. Using this experience, Kwan has developed a program that focuses on the client’s needs, building independence and improving quality of life. Kwan’s strong desire to serve others has pushed him to build a team that is dedicated to improving the lives of others and support clients through their recovery. Kwan believes that only as a team can we achieve Enable Exercise’s mission
