Amy Van Dyken Takes First Steps Two Months After ATV Accident


The Olympic champion takes her first steps with the help of a bionic exoskeleton device two months after she was paralyzed from the waist down because of the accident she was involved in in June.

Amy Van Dyken cannot hide her excitement as she takes her first steps since she was paralyzed from the waist down for two months after severing her spinal cord in an ATV accident. The six-time Olympic gold medalist took to Instagram on Thursday, August 21 to share two videos and two photos of her walking with the aid of a bionic exoskeleton device.

She captioned the first video, "Here it is...I'm WALKING!!! #onestepatatime #itcouldhappen." In the video, Amy can be seen walking slowly while a medical staff member guided her how to use the bionic device. Meanwhile, in the second video, Amy is helped to stand by another medical staff member. She wrote along with the video, "Standing up for the first time on my own in 2 1/2 months."

Amy also shared a collage of photos of her and her husband, Tom Rouen. In one of the photos, she can be seen sharing a kiss with Tom. She captioned the photo with, "Standing with my hubby."

In the second picture she posted, Amy smiles widely as she stands with the help of the bionic device. She wrote alongside the picture, "Who's excited to be walking with an exoskeleton? This chick! #dreamscometrue #happygirl."
