The story of model and fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs, who lost her arm in a tragic accident last year, has gone viral. Most recently Lauren (and her prosthetic arms) was profiled in People magazine (click link to read the full article).
Lauren reached out to Advanced Arm Dynamics to be fitted with three different, activity-specific prosthetic arms, including ones that employ the Boa Closure System. Lauren slips the prosthetic onto her arm, then uses her other hand to turn the Boa dial until she achieves the optimal fit.
As her limb swells during a workout, she can easily adjust the prosthetic’s fit with a simple turn of the Boa dial.
In the People magazine article, Lauren expresses her appreciation for how the prosthetic arms have helped her regain her former active lifestyle. Since Lauren (or “Lolo” as she’s known to friends), is into fashion and often wears pink, we think she’ll enjoy the pink dials available for almost all Boa-powered products through Boa Technology’s Reel Pink Campaign, the proceeds of which support breast-cancer awareness through non-profit Boarding4BreastCancer.
Learn more about Lauren’s incredible story of bravery and adapting to her new life in her recently published book, Still Lolo, available here: http://stilllolo.com/.
