Tom Whittaker meets Rehab Systems
Dale met Tom in 1979 shortly after Tom lost his foot in an accident. Tom Whittaker is the first amputee to summit Mt. Everest and was a Rehab Systems patient.
Tom summited Mt. Everest as a mountaineer not as a tourist. Meaning he hiked the whole way with limited support. Rehab Systems built four sockets for Tom, two technical climbing sockets and two trekking sockets.
Tom Whittaker’s inspiring story of climbing Mount Everest is in the book he wrote “Higher Purpose.”
