Paul Martino, of United Prosthetics, makes a plaster cast the remaining part of Mery Daniel's left leg, as her physician, Dr. David Crandell, right, medical director of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital's amputee program, watches in Boston. Crandell, a physiatrist at Spaulding, has treated 15 of at least 16 marathon amputees. Richardson Daniel, Mery's husband, right rear, observes. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

Martino helps Daniel as she takes her first step during a fitting for her prosthetic leg at the company in Boston. Martino's family business has been helping amputees for about 100 years, including many of the bombing survivors. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

Daniel stands as Martino adjusts a cover on top of the computerized knee of her prosthetic left leg at the company in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston. Daniel's right leg also suffered significant damage in the blast. The custom-made prosthetic leg features advanced technology, but is clumsy compared to the leg that she lost in the bombing. "I had one that worked perfectly," she told Martino. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

Daniel pauses while she talks with her physical therapist Jessica Guilbert, while she takes a break from exercising with her prosthetic leg at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)

Daniel steadies herself as she climbs up and down stairs with her therapist Urvashi Chogle, left, at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. Nearly six months following the Boston Marathon bombing, Daniel has slowly begun to regain her mobility and her independence. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)
