“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.” ~ Christopher Reeve 2018 marks a big year for me. As each month passes I glance back to 10 years ago and how far God has brought me. It has been an incredible journey and continues to be. I’m grateful God continues to lead me to places and people I never dreamed of being or meeting! #celebrating10years#poweredbyGod#eyestothesky#cancersucks
We all know that real recovery happens when patients are able to move and do the things they love most, and we are here for every part of the journey.

Wendy Garrett is heading for Tokyo on February 25th to become the FIRST person (male or female with a spinal cord injury) to finish the 6 World Marathon Majors! Read her story below:
On a day in March 2013 my Aunt Pam and I sat in a doctor's office in Utah. A lot was on the line. I'd spent almost 3 years of my life in a walking boot with my life on hold. I'd spent those years going doctor to doctor looking for answers. I'd decided this was going to be my last try.
On that day in March 2013 I finally had answers. He discovered I had 2 seperate spinal cord injuries. The bad news: I wouldn't get back the use of my left leg. I was sad as I'd held on hope for those 3 years I would. But the good news: he was sending me to be fitted for an orthotic so I could be "active again". I immediately asked "Will I run again?!" To which he smiled and said "Let's just give walking a try first." March 28, 2013 I received my orthotic and immediately went for a run. It was nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Allard USA for my amazing ToeOFF!
We always say that our AFO's help people get back up, but Georgi's BlueROCKER is helping her get back up to speed. Go Georgi!

Just back seat driving 🎒 🎒 🤷🏼♀️ @allardusa getting me back out at the track and a few sneaky rides 🤷🏼♀️💖
Children learn movement by moving. Rather than bracing heavily, we want the foot and ankle to experience as much useful movement as possible. That's why we believe in creating braces with as much flexibility as possible along the planes where a child has good control, providing support only where needed. #cascadedafo#oandp#orthoticsandprosthetics#anklefootorthosis
Here's a post from Kelly in #Holland who wears our #AllardAFOs . How much fun are her shoes too? #tuesdayshoesday#Repost @kelly_met_ms (@get_repost)
Sneakers on and go.
This is a great exercise for my abs and lower back muscles. I can’t do the exercises I did in rehab. We talked about working out with hoops. Now I do some training everymorning. 🇳🇱
Sportschoenen aan en hoepelen maar! Goed voor zowel de buik als de onderrug spieren. Juist mijn onderrugspieren moeten goed getraind worden, maar ik kan de oefeningen van Rijndam niet bij de fysio doen. We hebben het in Rijndam over hoepelen gehad. Vorige week kwam ik een fitness hoepel tegen en sindsdien ben ik s’morgens aan het hoepelen. Elke dag word ik er beter in. Muziekje aan en gaan!
Our #AFOs help provide #supportforbetterlife in many ways ranging from helping people take a stroll with their spouse, to athletic feats, to just enjoying time with their kids like Jamie is doing here with her #BlueROCKER .
