On Saturday, June 4, 2011 at 9am, Hanger employees and patients (including Army Veteran John Redfield, a below-the-knee amputee) will participate, in the Blue & Gray Reunion's 5K Run. Redfield lost his leg in April 1991 when he was hit by a van while riding his motorcycle. Just seven months after his accident, he participated in a nearly five mile road race and has been running ever since with advanced prosthetic technology. During Saturday's 5K run, Redfield will use the microprocessor-controlled socket system called the V-Hold, a technology that uses advanced sensors to measure what Redfield is doing, and vacuum suction technology to adjust the amount of suction in the socket to create the ideal fit. The V-Hold technology was developed and commercialized by Hanger's subsidiary Innovative Neurotronics. For more information on the V-Hold, visit www.hanger.com/prosthetics/services/Technology/Pages/V-Hold.aspx. Redfield will also address the audience after the two amputation reenactments on June 4 (2:15pm and 9:00pm).
