Robert MacDonald has made a remarkable recovery and in this photo is running in a marathon.

The ACTIVATOR poles allowed me to get up and moving, but also allowed me to feel secure. I believe using the poles instead of a cane or walker allowed me to continue to recover and have the mindset of focusing on progress while staying mobile. In short, they make full recovery and mobility possible!
