A young man who has a mid thoracic complete paraplegia following a road traffic accident applied to us for help to fund a SmartDrive Power Assist to his manual wheelchair. The man suffers with pain in his shoulders and has had to undergo surgery to relieve this. He also has pain in his hands which affects him being able to propel his wheelchair. His Consultant Surgeon says the provision of the SmartDrive will help to reduce his current symptoms and will prevent future problems to his shoulders and hands. ACT were pleased to be able to pledge a donation of £2K to help him on his fundraising way.
