Marvel star Jeremy Renner has revealed the latest thing he’s using to continue his recovery process. 

The Hawkeye actor was airlifted to hospital on New Year’s Day after his six-tonne snow plough ran over him at his Reno, Nevada home, causing over 30 broken bones and blunt chest trauma. 

On Sunday (26th March), Jeremy continued to share his recovery with fans when he uploaded a video of a new anti-gravity treadmill he’s using to get walking once again. 

Taking to his Instagram Stories and Twitter, Jeremy’s video showed the star walking while strapped into the massive machine, and can be heard saying how he feels “less weight” compared to “having a cane” to move around with. 

The Bourne Legacy star wrote in the Twitter caption: “I now have to find OTHER things to occupy my time so my body can recover from my will.”

Jeremy has been very open with his recovery, sharing lots of updates about the latest technology he’s using to get his body moving again. 

In February, the star posted a video to his Instagram Stories, showing him pedalling on an exercise bike with one leg. He is holding a tool in his hand to help him pedal. The short POV clip is captioned “Whatever it takes”.

Jeremy then posted another Instagram Story, which shows that he is focusing on his "mental recovery too". The picture shows him holding The Book of Awakening by philosopher, poet, and cancer survivor Mark Nepo in front of a roaring fireplace.

The Hollywood star previously posted a video from intensive care, which showed bruising on his face while clad in a hospital gown and cap, with one family member massaging his head.

Friends of Renner have been showing their support, with Marvel co-star Evangeline Lilly telling Access Hollywood about her visit, saying: “I expected to sit at his bedside and hold his hand while he moaned and groaned in pain. But he was wheeling himself around, laughing with friends. It’s a miracle. It’s a straight-up miracle.”

Ant-Man star Lilly, who also appeared along Renner in The Hurt Locker, continued: “He’s made of something really tough, that guy. You’ve always been able to see that in him. He is recovering incredibly, and it’s beautiful. I’m so grateful.”
