Jeremy Renner showed his recovery efforts as he walked on a treadmill nearly four months after being crushed by a snowplow.
The 52-year-old actor was fastened inside an antigravity machine which allowed him to transfer 60% of the weight off his lower body and enabled him to have almost full range of motion in his legs.
In a video shared with his millions of fans on Twitter, the “Hawkeye” star said he was using “40% of his weight” to walk on the high-tech equipment.
The update was a stark contrast to how Renner began the year. On Jan. 1, Renner was airlifted to a local hospital in Reno, Nevada and had surgery after suffering blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries when he was “completely crushed” by his 14,000-pound PistenBully snowcat.

Renner could be heard praising the apparatus for its unique features, which made his body feel like it was carrying “less weight.”

“It’s like having a cane,” he said of using the special treadmill, which is designed to ease effects of high-impact exercises.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe star wore a gray T-shirt as he walked on the device from what appeared to be in the comfort of his own home.
“I now have to find OTHER things to occupy my time so my body can recover from my will,” he captioned the post.
He recently celebrated the homecoming of the PistenBully involved in the traumatic incident which could have cost him his life.
“She’s finally making her way home,” he wrote alongside a picture of his beloved snowplow.

“The cat get a police Escort. Feels like the Green mile!”
Renner was involved in an accident near his Lake Tahoe home while attempting to help a family member whose vehicle was stuck in the snow on the first day of the year.
A massive snowstorm the night before had left multiple vehicles stranded, and Renner attempted to move one vehicle from his driveway by using his PistenBully. He successfully moved the car, exited the PistenBully and was speaking with a family member when the snowplow began to roll unexpectedly.
Renner attempted to jump back into the 14,000-pound snowcat, but was run over. Dispatch reported a subject was “moaning loudly in the background” of a call at 8:58 a.m. where “serious bleeding” was recorded. Seconds later dispatch wrote, “subject is bleeding heavily from his head and other unknown injuries.”

It was also noted the caller wasn’t sure “where all the blood is coming from.” Additionally, the 911 call log stated that it’s believed Renner’s “right side of his chest is collapsed” and “upper torso is crushed.”
He suffered chest trauma, broke over 30 bones, and has undergone multiple surgeries as a result of the accident.
Renner became a two-time Oscar nominee with “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town.” He earned his own Disney+ series, “Hawkeye,” after multiple appearances in MCU films, including “The Avengers” series.
He’s gearing up for a new automobile renovation show called “Rennervations,” where he will travel the world with his best friend, Rory Milikin, in search of decommissioned vehicles to refurbish a reuse in extraordinary ways.
