"Hi Eleanor. I agree that it's not for everyone but there are people who could make good use of this. I know it's all terrain but given it's not very bulky, perhaps it's the sort of thing that could go on the bus in order to reach…"

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. "

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…
