“The things that make Next Step really king of the industry, especially in New England, is that they’re going out and finding the technology. They’re finding ways to improve.”

“Without Next Step I wouldn’t have the quality of life that I have now… If I didn’t have a proper-fitting prosthetic, I wouldn’t be able to do everyday stuff that people take for granted.”

“You can tell they care; it’s not just about making a product and ‘off you go.’ They’re really concerned about you as people, as individuals.”
