Lais Souza stands alone and thrilled with the internet
Along the recovery journey of former gymnast Lais Souza , the 28-year-old has been winning many victories. In her Instagram, she recently showed that she was able to stand alone using a stabilizer called Ortho Walk, developed by the clinic in which she is treated, the Ortho Campus.
Lais' novelty moved her followers and her team of doctors. "One of the happiest days of my life was today and I owe it to #orthocampus who created the #orthowalk thanks for thinking of noiz," she said in the photo caption.
Lais' life changed completely when in 2014 , she trained aerial skiing to compete for the Winter Olympic Games of the same year and ended up suffering an accident in the United States. An injury to the spine caused the ex-gymnast to lose the movements below the neck, and since then her trajectory has been focused on her recovery.
More and more people have switched cars by public transport in major cities. Even because the traffic is a great cause of stress. But the benefits of riding a bus go beyond the possibility of relaxing when other vehicles do not walk. A new study presented Nov. 8 at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2015 showed that people who use public transportation such as buses and trains have lower risks of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity.
The study lasted for 10 years and was attended by 35,000 men 50 years of age or older. They were divided into three groups. The first one received daily doses of vitamin E. The second received supplementation of vitamin E and selenium, a mineral that is also considered an ally against tumors in the prostate.
