Lauren nearly died when she was hit by a spinning plane propeller in December 2011. She had a traumatic brain injury and lost her left hand and left eye. Her first prosthetic arm allowed the 22-year-old to start working out with a trainer, lifting her mood, and helping her heal. Lauren is a now married with two children and is a writer, model and social media influencer.

Lauren Workout
"I love my workout prosthesis and I don't know what I'd do without it. I work out four or five times a week, some with a trainer, some at the gym."
