Story

I am a Registered Blind wheelchair user who suffers from Mitochondrial Disease.  I get easily fatigued and have only a small amount of energy each day !  Here I am with my amazing Roovision, built by York Remap voluteer Rupert "Roo" Powell. 

The Roovision has a VR screen near my eyes and a camera with a powereful zoom. I can make several adjustments with a games controller.  See Roovision here :    https://youtu.be/hVySAm33SVg  This enables me to watch and enjoy live sporting events, which I have been unable to do in the past.

I am undertaking the Superhero Triathlon on 18th August at Dorney lake in Windsor, along with my sighted friend Sara Fleming.  The triathlon will be broadcast by Channel 4 and presented by Clair Balding.  Your sponsorships will go to York Remap, the charity which makes free bespoke gadgets for disabled people.  See  york.remap.org.uk  Thank you !
