We finally met with our first recipient this past Tuesday! There were a lot of nerves in the room as she entered and we prepared her for a fitting, but everything went very smoothly. Emily, the leader of our clinical team, was incredibly professional, and the fitting process was seamless. After the fitting, we sat down and just chatted with Kaylyn a bit, and we ended up learning a lot about her. With a smile as bright as her personality, the room filled with laughter as she told us about herself and her husband. We got a bit more personal and learned about her ATV accident, and then proceeded to discuss ideas about the types of attachments that she wanted. The deadline has been set for her first prototypes, and we will be working hard with our new members to keep to our deadlines! We also had another huge milestone with our first General Body Meeting on Thursday. There were a lot of enthusiastic and familiar faces, and as it looks like we’ll have a lot of bright minds joining our team very soon. Be on the look out for our next blog post about the progress we’re making on both ends!
