Eric Jones – The Final Climb
Extreme sports enthusiast Eric Jones is best described as truly inspirational. Having had a MatOrtho® knee replacement in 2010, he has continued to follow his passion for BASE jumping, skiing and rock climbing right up until the summer of 2018, when he decided to complete his final climb in Italy – right where it all began.
At the end of September 2018, and at the grand age of 81, Eric repeated his first solo climb in the Alps which he initially conquered in 1965, and also a solo climb of a spectacular tower in the Italian Dolomites.
The resulting video footage is quite remarkable and demonstrates Eric’s continued ability following his joint replacement from more than 8 years ago – a true testament to the excellent MRK™ Knee System combined with the determination to continue life as normal by this exceptional gentleman.
We are both privileged and proud to present Eric’s video and thank him for sharing it with us.
Please note, the MatOrtho® ‘Joint Advisor’ website is an exciting new project which we will share with you soon…
