Maria S. Grufstedt, PT
Maria is a Swedish native, who graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy school from University of Lund, Sweden in 2003. She has experience with inpatient and outpatient pediatrics and cardiac rehabilitation, and the last few years mostly orthopedics. She has continuing education in Muscle Energy Techique (MET), kinesio taping and McKenzie method.
Maria has a passion for helping people to regain their optimum level of activity whether it is in active daily living or sports.
Maria chose to work for the Able Bionics USA program associated with Bridging Bionics Foundation in order to help people with mobility impairments stand up and walk, and to follow their progress as they regain strength, mobility and confidence. She wanted to be a part of changing lives for this population of the community.
Maria lives in Basalt, near Aspen, with her husband and two little boys. She enjoys being active in the beautiful outdoors, especially biking, running and skiing.
Debra L. Weidemann, MSPT
For the majority of her Physical Therapy career, Debbie has worked with neurologically-involved and geriatric clients. She has always loved addressing the mobility limits of her patients and problem solving how to help them move and function optimally. In October of 2015, Debbie took the opportunity to learn something new and serve her community in a different way by training as one of the physical therapists for Able Bionics USA and the Bridging Bionics Foundation. Although she has been challenged by learning new technologies, and working with a different client population, Debbie has found this experience extremely rewarding. She is excited about the possibilities for advancing mobility for injured clients as technology and therapist’s skills continue to progress.
Debbie has lived and played in the Roaring Fork Valley for over 20 years and makes her home in Glenwood Springs, Colorado with her husband and two children.
