What’s the one thing people often wrongly assume you can’t do?

Started Sep 27, 2018 0 Replies

Granted it’s not exactly a brand-new theme (“disability is so very misunderstood”) but the object here isn’t to have a lazy moan. Not least of all because I, personally, don’t have a disability. I’m…Continue

Thanks and Goodbye

Today is my last day working at Blackwood and managing bespoken. After giving it a lot of thought I decided it was time for a change, and so, I’m going off to teach English as a foreign language in Japan. I wanted to do a short blog post reflecting on my time at Blackwood, so here goes. In 2013 I had just finished university with a very fancy degree and found that I was eminently…See More

Award Winning SMART Prosthetic Limb is Closest to Real Leg

The biggest challenge faced by designers when making a prosthetic leg is how to capture and recreate that natural flow of movement. When a person who has two legs walks, they don’t consciously think about the articulations in their knee, ankle and foot. Their body knows what to do to keep them balanced and stable, functioning at optimum level, and it simply does it. Any…See More

What’s the one thing people often wrongly assume you can’t do?

Granted it’s not exactly a brand-new theme (“disability is so very misunderstood”) but the object here isn’t to have a lazy moan. Not least of all because I, personally, don’t have a disability. I’m just interested to find out what people affected will have to say. So the question is – ‘What’s the one thing people often wrongly assume you can’t do?’ Driving is a common one as is sex (not at the same time). Visually impaired people being talked at loudly on the assumption they are also deaf…See More

Magnetised Shirt Buttons Enable Person with Parkinson's to Dress Themselves in Seconds

I saw the following news report (see video below) about a woman in the USA who started making shirts with magnetic buttons for her husband who had been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.The illness chipped away at his mobility and motor skills until one day he couldn't button his shirt. Since his wife created these shirts for him he can dress himself in seconds as the magnets simply click together to fasten the shirt.This got me wondering how do other people manage who have similar difficulty…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.

 

However....

 

I am raising money for a very worthy cause. And although Movember is typically supposed to be focused on charities that concern men only, I figured that one good cause is as…
