Staff and R & D department of Kinetic Research,
I just want to thank you. I lost part of my foot due to a frostbite injury while serving in Afghanistan. After the trans-metatarsal amputation I was not able to walk or stand for extended periods of time without excruciating pain. I walked with a limp and very slow, running was completely out of the question. I thought that is how it would be forever and that was a devastating reality for me. Then I saw a specialist at the VA and he ordered a Noodle TA device for me.
I was apprehensive at first, the thought of having something strapped to my shin all the time was not appealing. When I put it on, I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it is. Then I took my first steps in it… I was almost in tears, it changed everything. I had support again and the spring in my step. Since that day my life and my health has drastically improved. I can’t thank your company enough. I am 28 years old and I am pretty sure you now have a lifelong customer. I use your brace with everything, loafers, tennis shoes, hiking boots and work boots. Thank you so much. Your innovations changed my life and allowed me to continue my pre-injury lifestyle.
