On a busy day recently when the team was heads down working through a daunting technical challenge and starting to feel a bit discouraged we received an email from a VirZOOM customer:
“It pretty much saved my son’s life last year. He was diagnosed with AMPS (Amplified Muscular Syndrome) in October and lost his ability to walk without great pain. After many ineffective treatments on a hunch I ordered VirZOOM and it was the ONLY thing he would fight through the pain to do. Now he is walking after 8 months! So I am a HUGE VirZoom fan… as is my whole family.
“We recommended it to Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia. They have the #1 AMPS treatment program in the world. I showed VirZOOM to their PT people and they loved it.
"The ONLY way to beat AMPS is to work through the pain. It is a neurological issue and therefore you can’t medicate it at all. Neurological pain pathways have to be “re-wired” and the only way to do that is exercise. It is so hard to get kids in this kind of pain to exercise, but the gaming aspect of VirZOOM helped them do so. I would think ANY PT place that deals in kids would buy your product in a heartbeat. I’d be happy to be a reference.” - Pelle
Pelle and his son later dropped by our offices in Cambridge to tell their story in person. The team was practically in tears when they heard the suffering that this young man had endured. There he stood in front of us after climbing the three flights of stairs to our offices with only a few remnants remaining of the AMP symptoms that left him mostly bed ridden eight months months before. The satisfaction of helping him and his family lifted our spirits and put the frustrations of the day into perspective.
