Chanette was just walking the dogs. Two little Yorkies. As she does every day of her life. But this time was different. Two new dogs emerged along the route. Big dogs. Mean dogs. Headed her way. And instead of being stopped by an electric fence, they just kept coming.
Don rolled a dump truck and was thrown from the cab of the vehicle. He was in a wheelchair for months. The X10 Knee Recovery System™ was able to help Don’s knee and, surprisingly, his hip as well. In addition to all of his injuries, Don was facing a very challenging ACL LCL Knee Recovery.
