Quality of life can be vastly improved with sports prosthetics
Are sports prosthetics just nice-to-haves or do they actually make a life-altering impact in people's lives? Our user study sheds light on the topic of running blades and their importance.
Crunching the numbers
The user study participants said the Levitate blade kit and service have greatly improved their self-confidence, and motivation to do sports. In fact, 75% of the user study participants became active daily and began practicing a wider variety of sports activities after receiving their Levitate blade.
The data showed that the user study participants exercise more often after receiving sports prosthetics and reported a feeling of improved overall health and fitness. These results are meaningful and needed to get back onto one’s “feet”. Being more active is so much more than just being fit. It builds confidence, that extends into all aspects of one’s life and often goes hand in hand with more social participation and inclusion resulting in further improvements in mental and physical health.
90% of the user study participants assembled the blade kit themselves and evaluated the process of buying, assembly, and alignment and use to be safe. These results led the users to describe Levitate as a disruptive and empowering company opening new possibilities and a powerful sense of freedom.
