Being Disabled

Being disabled should not stop you being able to play with gadgets and technology. There is a lot of useful stuff out there to assist you to do things like turn the TV over. To some, this may sound incidental, believe me, it means a lot!

It also shouldn’t stop anybody from enjoying life. Well, enjoying most days anyway. We fully appreciate that some days are more difficult than others.

Let me explain a little bit about my situation. I am basically paralysed from the neck down. However, I am still able to use the PC which enables me to use my Amateur Radio.

I am also able to turn the TV over, which is a godsend if you do not like the X factor!
