NY Fashion Week Runway Model See Bionic Arm as the Ultimate Tech Accessory
Model Rebekah Marine rocked the runway at NY Fashion Week and in the spring Nordstrom catalog. And she’s a whole lot more than a pretty face—she’s a dedicated advocate for people with limb differences, especially children. Rebekah was born without her right hand, and for much of her life, she chose not to wear a prosthesis. But in 2014, news about an advanced prosthetic hand got Rebekah’s attention and led her to investigate what it would be like to wear the i-limb ultra revolution hand, which can be controlled by apps on a cell phone. She and her prosthetist Ryan Spill visited the studios of “Good Day Philadelphia!”, Fox 29, to share her story with the morning news team. The lovely Rebekah Marine shows the world what it means to be perfectly imperfect, beautifully bionic, confidently capable, and ready to make things happen!
