“It’s a necessity…I could not do the things I do without my leg.”
Before using Empower, Rob needed the assistance of a cane to walk with his prosthetic, took pain medication daily and had to take leave from his job. After using Empower, he is back at work and achieving his goal to regain the ability to do the things he could before he lost his leg. He no longer needs assistance to walk, and challenges that might have exhausted him before, like walking at work, are normal tasks again.
“Now that I have the Meridium, I am able to confidently walk and move and carry things. It almost thinks what you’re thinking.”
As a busy working mother, Mandie is determined to keep up with her everyday activities. The bebionic hand helps her reach her goal of living life without the worry of limitations, especially when it comes to being with her daughter. The lifelike hand means she can do things other people take for granted, like type and use the mouse at the same time while working at her computer. She says she doesn’t have to struggle because the hand does what she wants when she wants it.
