So, just exactly how – and why – did our mission start?
“I just felt that if the insurance companies are treating a running blade as sports equipment, and that’s the reason they don’t reimburse it—well, then let’s treat it as sports equipment, Let’s put it in a nice box that looks like a running-shoe box. And just as anyone can go online and buy new running shoes, an amputee should be able to go online and buy a new running leg.
You watch a video, you put it together, you go out and try it, and then tweak a little bit here or a little bit there—like you would do with your bicycle, where you might adjust the height of the seat. I just took that exact concept. I think sports equipment for people with disabilities should be the same as it is for everyone else.”
