There is no question the former Olympian Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is a force to be reckoned with. Her aggression helped to propel her to a total of two Olympics as a swimmer where she won six gold medals. Lately however the woman has been in the news in conjunction with the catastrophic All Terrain Vehicle accident she had this past June.
The fall left her unable to feel or move anything below her waist. Since the incident she has been working on rehabilitating her body. This recently paid off as she was allowed to walk with the assistance of a bionic exoskeleton device. Since she has not regained feeling in her legs it would not be possible for her to reach this mile stone without the aid of the exoskeleton. Other paraplegics are likely expressing their hope that the device soon becomes available to all.
