Graduation Achievements

A high school graduate practices gait training for the commencement ceremony

It’s that time of year, the season of commencement ceremonies, and each year we hear words of inspiration and hope from podiums all over the country.

But here at Rifton, because we make a gait trainer, we hear remarkable stories of perseverance, of high school kids whose lives have been upended by injury but resolve to walk across the stage to receive their diploma. This year is no different, and here is a story from south Florida that cannot fail to inspire.

Some graduation miracles even make national news, like this great segment from ABC’s “Good Morning America.” This graduate was able to leave his Pacer in his rehab facility and walk with his fiancé across the stage, evoking the same sense of awe and hope. Enjoy them both and share with others.
