C-Brace® wearer Hannah plays with her children.

Hannah’s story

Hannah was diagnosed with incomplete paraplegia after a routine back procedure did not go according to plan. Her day-to-day life felt like an insurmountable obstacle while caring for two young children in a wheelchair. Today, Hannah wears the C-Brace. For her, the orthosis means taking control of her life again, and not having to rely so heavily on others. Learn about Hannah’s independent everyday life.

"We shouldn’t just be thankful for having enough to eat in our everyday lives, but also for being able to pick things up off the floor. That’s something we shouldn’t take for granted.”

In conversation with Hannah

Hannah remembers when doctors advised her to have her paralyzed leg amputated, which is unbelievable when you see how independent she is in her day-to-day life with her family now. “I can walk again, and I now feel free to do all the things I did before my incident,” Hannah says. And as a mother, the most important thing for Hannah is being able to walk while holding both of her children's hands.
