Having already used a Fox shock in my Moto Knee, the prosthetic leg I developed, I knew that I would take advantage of Fox's superior suspension dynamics in the Versa Foot as well.
The crazy part, with all of the surgeries I had, I retained water from the IV fluids, and I gained 60 pounds. I was 247 pounds at my maximum. I couldn't even touch my face because my joints were swollen. I was so big, it was ridiculous - just insane.
Building prosthetics that allow people to get back to the fun activities in life is as rewarding a job as I can imagine. It's just as fulfilling for me as winning at the racetrack.
When I originally started looking at different prosthetic components, most of them were just set up for walking.
I am the owner of my prosthetic manufacturing business, BioDapt, which manufactures lower-limb prosthetics for sports.
It's kind of mind-blowing what some of us adaptive athletes can accomplish as far as physical sports.
