On November 25, 2007, Kristina Ripatti, the Los Angeles police officer who was shot and paralyzed in the line of duty in June 2006, made a special appearance on the 100th episode of the television series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Ripatti and her husband Tim, also an L.A. police officer, received a remade home last year on the hit series. During the two-hour episode in which Kristina and Tim joined seven other families to help in the show's 100th makeover, she was seen exercising on NuStep's TRS 4000, a recumbent cross trainer she received on Extreme Makeover.
