Ottobock C-Brace campaign

For Ottobock I photographed the new campaign for the C-Brace, an orthotronic mobility system that allows paralyzed people to walk again.
I met with David Tupper in the USA, a retired Marine who was severely wounded in Afghanistan leaving him unable to walk and paralyzed from the waist down. Marjan, a former professional handball player, who I met in the Netherlands battled with cancer, eventually beating it but lost control over her right leg and Denise from Germany, a former nurse, who became partially paralyzed after a routine surgery on her spine went wrong.
I was astonished to see how with the help of this new device all this inspiring people were able to walk again as if nothing ever happened.
