Good morning to you folks! My name is 1LT Troy Givens and I am a combat wounded veteran. I currently reside in Eugene, OR where I am undergoing physical therapy and medical treatment for the injuries I sustained in Afghanistan in Dec. 2010. Prior to relocating to Oregon, I was in San Antonio, Texas at the Brooke Army Medical Center. During several months there in the ICU, I learned to walk again and was introduced to the AMP Research PowerSteps. (You would be hard pressed to find a wounded Soldier with a truck down there who didn’t have their truck set up with the PowerSteps and BedSteps.) I do not meet the criteria to get assistance through the VA because I still have some use of my leg. Although I can bend my leg, I lack flexibility in my knee and half of my lower quad muscle is physically missing on my right leg. My right knee is being held together by scar tissue and calcification. Therefore, the overall stability of my leg is quite minimal and muscle control is very weak, especially on the days when I have physical therapy. I am hoping AMP Research can assist me in acquiring the PowerSteps and BedSteps for my truck. These products would be very beneficial to me in my daily life. Thank you for your time! ~ Troy Givens
Congratulations again to Troy. Keep up the amazing work!
