He continues solve the discomfort problems that are common with artificial limbs and give his patients a new hope to walk, run, model, compete, or simple go back to work in comfort and confidence.

"Thank you to Alex Freire at KOLMAN PROSTHETICS & ORTHOTICS for making us this body suit that Rexi can run in with comfort. He is such a creative and awesome guy and we can't wait [until] he finishes the next walking apparatus. The neurologist said she will not be able to walk by herself again and [they are] still trying to figure out exactly what she has. There will be more tests and doctors appointment in near future so lets pray for the best. In the meantime we will continue to give her the best life we can. Thank you all sooooo much for all your support.."
