Reeve Sets Record Straight

Christopher Reeve says a recent video that showed his legs moving during therapy shouldn’t be misconstrued. The paralyzed actor-director was videotaped May 1 at the University of California at Los Angeles, suspended in a harness while researchers moved his feet and legs in a walking motion on a treadmill. The video was shared with TV stations. Some media reported or gave the impression that he is now able to walk, Reeve said. “Unfortunately, this is not the case. I am completely paralyzed from the rib cage down,” he said Thursday. “However, I am participating in a cutting-edge therapy which is part of my overall exercise program.”
