Reggie Showers relishes life like few others. He's a two-time world motorcycle drag racing champion, a pilot, a rock climber, and a certified snowboard instructor. "Every day I wake up is a beautiful day," he says. "Even when the sun's not shining, it's still shining in my life." As a bilateral amputee, Showers has learned to take little for granted, embracing a life of adventure, nature, and... technology.
Reggie's latest foot, the Soleus, came about as a recent product redesign to improve it's durability and performance. Aaron Taszreak, Engineering Manager at College Park comments "With PTC Creo, we optimized the design to reduce weight and also increase strength, cutting weight by 10% and upping strength by 40%." And for that, Reggie says he’s grateful. “My hat’s off to all the engineers, all the prosthetists, and everybody involved with building a foot that allows me to go out and live a better life.”
