Welcome to the Tokyo Blade Library - you'd better run!

Okay so the term “blade library” is perhaps a little misleading as it conjures up images of a dusty old building where Jason Voorhees browses for a suitable weapon for his weekend shenanigans. It isn’t that. ContextWith the growing popularity of para-sports we’ve all seen amputees use prosthetic running blades in major competitions like the Paralympics or Invictus games. While I hope that people are…See More

"Thank you Anne for your kind words. I think all who contributed to the above can't have found it easy but it's important I feel to be more open about these matters. It's the only way to take the stigma out of mental illness. "

"Hi, Paul, well done on being so open about this, you certainly hide it well, panic attacks are not to be dismissed as something and nothing, I have been there and its the worst feeling. I so admire the work you do and your ability to do it so well…"

Stylish wearable technology gets visually impaired people about safely

A graduate of Brunel University has designed a discrete and smart wearable technology that makes it easier and safer for people with a visual impairment to get from A to B. Emilios Farrington-Arnas, whose family includes people with poor eyesight, came up with the idea for a tactile hands free system he calls ‘Maptic’. It consists of three components; a sensor worn around the neck like a pendant and two feedback units on either side of the body. These can be worn as wrist bands or clipped to…See More

Perhaps the designers of this wheelchair started from the premise that – “4 wheels are expensive. Let’s see if we can do it with 2”. If so, mission accomplished. The Nino Robotics wheelchair uses the same self-levelling system as the Segway to balance comfortably and safely on just 2 wheels. When you get in and out of the…See More

Game of Thrones Character finally gets wheelchair! Our review...

Posted on August 18, 2017 at 8:25 2 Comments

Okay so maybe you aren’t remotely interested in the hit HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ but bear with me.

 

Quick back story with only minimal spoilers*

In the very first episode we saw the young character of Bran Stark fall from a tower. The resulting fall left him paralysed and for several past seasons in this pseudo medieval fantasy world he was alternatively carried by someone or dragged along in a makeshift sledge. Not ideal.

No more however. It only took…

My Movember - Raising funds for Alzheimer Research UK

Alright so admittedly it's not really the most impressive moustache you've ever seen and Daniel Day-Lewis is probably not feeling too threatened yet.
