Technology gives hope

I cannot help but be totally inspired by Nick and Chris Fryer who have had Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy since the age of 8 and were not expected at all to live until the age of 37. Their interest in, and capacity to work with, technology has given them a life full of hope and inspiration. They are world changers and are enabling themselves to have an even bigger impact on the world by their creative use of technology. You can miss the first 3 minutes of this video and see just how much they can do and how inventive they are. Now they have got this far they are taking an interest in other MS affected people and creating a YouTube channel to show them that they , too, can have a positive, productive life. You can read the abc news article Muscular Dystrophy Robot Building Twins to understand better just what they have achieved through technology and how their use of technology is having a profound impact on the world of people who have Duchenne’s MS. Nick and Chris are showing us that we no longer need to be limited in any way. Technology offers a pathway to those who were previously marginalised because we thought we did not have a way of helping them. As it turns out, if you give them the tools they can help themselves and  us , show us the possibilities and create solutions to problems in a way we had never previously imagined.
