Ann Arbor, Michigan
U.S. Army Veteran Matt Drake and his comrades were attacked by a suicide car bomber in October 2004. The lone survivor, Matt suffered life-threatening injuries, including a traumatic brain injury that meant he would need to relearn everything from talking to walking.
His survival was a miracle but his recovery was even more outstanding. Through years of hard work, determination and the support of family and medical professionals, Matt was able to regain his ability to communicate, walk and care for himself. The NuStep played a large part in that recovery, especially when it came to "re-patterning" the brain to walk. When the NuStep team heard of Matt's story, they knew they had to help in any way possible.
Matt was able to continue his rehab with the NuStep at home, and today, Matt is employed in the company wellness center.
