“I feel like I've been carrying around this weakness with me for years, and now I've, I feel like I have a strong leg again. For somebody like me to suddenly be able to run again, to jump, and just to walk without pain is amazing. It's an amazing feeling.”
“When I walked I was worried, “is my next step gonna be crash-and-hit-the-ground cause my brace brakes.” After getting my first Fabtech brace, that fear went away. I’m a retired military veteran. Fabtech gave the ability to chase an Olympic dream. And “Thank You” doesn't cut it.”
KEITH, MILITARY VERTERAN
“Putting the Reaktiv Brace on for the first time, I knew in less than five seconds that my foot game changed. There's no reason to think that you have to deal with this pain your entire life.”
