Maddies Race Night
Sat. 24th March
Here is some equipment on my wishlist for fund-raising.
Thanks for looking.
The Innowalk - £21,000
The Innowalk is a piece of equipment that supports me to learn to sit and to stand and when I am standing in it, it helps me to be able to learn to take steps. It's like a cross trainer in the sense that it exercises leg muscles and also helps with my head control. In it, I am fully supported so I feel safe and able to take steps myself and exercise my leg muscles which currently don't get any.
The more I use it, the stronger I will get and the more I will learn to use my legs.
and this is me having fun with the Eyegaze
The Eye Gaze - £6,500
I would really like to have my own eyegaze to enable me to be able to communicate back to people when they talk to me. I can understand the basic instructions and questions and I would like to have the equipment to be able to respond.
If I always had an eyegazre with me, I would be able to learn different ways of communicating with people. Not to mention the cool games that I love playing !
I could take my Eyegaze to school with me and it would help with my learning too.
Pool Aid - £1,650
I love swimming and hydrotherapy but someone has to hold me all the time so I can't move my arms and legs as much as I'd like to. With this special floating aid I would have more freedom to move, my muscles would relax, I'd sleep better and that makes me much happier. It would be amazing to have a bit more independence to splash in the pool like my brothers do.
This is me trying out the Innowalk
