We work in partnership with ProActive to make sure our athletes achieve their potential on the global platform. It is this teamwork that helped us succeed in London 2012 and Rio 2016. We could not have achieved this without the support of Richard Nieveen; we as a sport are truly grateful. We are looking forward to having Richard with us in Tokyo this summer.
Thank you for making the impossible, possible.
Attending ProActive’s clinic is always a pleasure; it is most unlike any other medical establishment I have attended in that respect. There is a sense of being part of a family at ProActive and yet the set up is also incredibly professional. There is a good camaraderie between patients and I enjoyed meeting other amputees. I don’t think I would have regained my independence if I did not have the benefit of being treated the close knit team. I could not recommend the treatment and the unstuffy, no nonsense, yet empathetic, approach more highly.
I actually assumed that Richard was an amputee himself when I first met him and for a long time afterwards because of his incredible in-depth knowledge and understanding of how it ‘feels’ to use a prosthetic limb.
Richard was prepared to listen to what I wanted to achieve, involve me in the process of choosing which products I would need to achieve my goals, he was positive and optimistic while being honest and realistic about what was possible. Richard made me feel like I was part of the team and that we were all working towards the same goal, helping me realise my dreams.
