Story

Richard was involved in a motor bike accident (12 weeks ago). He has a spinal cord injury with the prognosis of permanent damage to his lower limbs.
He spent 7 weeks in Nottingham hospital, and now he currently is in Sheffield where he is undergoing intense rehabilitation. In those 12 weeks I have spent my time living with him at the hospital, this has been to ensure I can support him and his treatment plan, whilst understanding what his injuries will mean for us in the future. This has meant us making some life changing decisions with regards to our home and everyday life. At this most challenging time, we are also expecting our first child together in September.

To assist Richard in walking again and help improve his quality of life we want to invest in some technology. As we do not have all of the funds (have raised £20,000 so far) for this I want to help him by crowdfunding. Let's all help get Richard this technology!

Richard is a great husband, and I really want him to be able to have the freedom he deserves to ensure he can play an active part in our first child's upbringing.

The donations will go directly to Richard, and he will be able to use this to invest in technology, if we can all reach the target. We want to be able to buy a indego personal device. In essence this is a powered lower limb orthosis. It has a powered hip and knee joint in conjunction with sensor technology. It helps people to stand up and walk. To find out more on this technology visit the website at www.indego.com

Thank you for your support, this means a lot to us both.
