Patient Stories

Graviel%20Walking_Edited_edited.jpg

Graviel

At the age of 6, Graviel was run over by a train car, loosing his entire right leg. After many years of use, this prosthesis eventually broke down. This is when Graviel met Dr. Richard Lynn. Dr. Lynn sought out a new prosthetic solution and was connected with Ryan and Zach. Graviel was refit with a hip disarticulation prosthesis. Inspired to help others in the Dominican Republic, Graviel started Centro de Protesis to help others with prosthetic care.

Rachel

Rachel was referred to Reform Prosthetics through Amputee Blade Runners, a national non-profit organization that serves active amputees across the country. Reform was initially asked to assess a problem with her existing prosthesis but ended up providing a replacement socket in order to best meet the needs of her active lifestyle. Rachel loves running with her dad around her neighborhood. Her current personal best distance is 3 miles!

Melanie

In 1995, Melanie was involved in a motorcycle accident which led to the amputation of her leg below the knee. After using a prosthesis for 20+ years, she grew tired of limiting her activity due to anticipated pain and soreness with increased activity. That's when she connected with Reform Prosthetics. Since being refit, Melanie has completed 2 half marathons. 

TESTIMONIALS

I’ve been an amputee for 15 years now. Getting the proper fit on my
prosthetic leg has been so difficult for many years until I started seeing
Mr. Weber. Being an amputee himself Zach is able to quickly identify
solutions for my problems as well as for other amputees.
