Alon Kaplan – I had a Stroke

Six years ago, I had a car accident.

My seat belt ruptured my artery. And a blood clot went up the artery into my brain. A couple of months after that, I had a stroke. The doctors put me in a medical coma. When I came out of the coma I couldn’t remember my name. My children’s name. Nothing. I was lost. My physical therapist and I made it so I could walk. A limping walk, but nothing was done to improve the use of my right arm. This devastated me completely. I came up with the idea of making rehabilitation equipment for me to exercise my body and mind. Now I walk, talk and live life fully.
