At Affinity Supporting People, many people we support love trying out the latest technology.
This is no different when it comes to care, and recently Dominic began taking part in ‘Physio with a Difference’ in Salford.
Dominic – who has mobility issues and uses a wheelchair – attends BASIC, a specialist centre for brain and spinal injuries.
The activity provides freedom of movement in a unique way – he is attached to a harness system and, with extra support from physio staff, he is able to stand.
He then watches a series of short animated clips and uses his skill and reflexes to manoeuvre around obstacles on the screen by ‘leaning’ away from them.
Dominic thoroughly enjoys these sessions and his physiotherapist reports that he is doing very well.
