Prosthetic Medic News: Joe Riffe Took First Steps

February 28th, 2012 by jake · 1 Comment

From Joe:

Here it is. My first steps…It’s far from graceful, I’m wearing mismatched shoes, and it’s not the prosthetic I will be using, but I was able to walk and stand. The weirdest thing was I could almost feel my feet touching the ground. It gives me some hope towards the future and a glimpse of things to come. The knee I will be getting will keep me from buckling while I walk, and I’ll be able to tackle steps and other obstacles.

This is why Louisville can have nice things.
