More than 40,000 Australian suffer from paralysis
Of these, 23% or 10,000 Australia's have paralysis from spinal cord injury
Of these, 60% are paraplegic.
Over the last two years, I have been attempting to build a new device to enable paraplegics to walk again. I am on the verge of a prototype mechanised knee sleeve to be worn by paraplegics. Mechanised hip joints together with spring assisted ankle joints will follow shortly.
However, there are significant costs in the coming months:
$10,000 by mid November 2016 to lodge an international patent application to prevent this new approach being stolen/lost to overseas interests (this campaign)
$15,000 by early 2017 (future campaign) to buy ten additional motors ($1,500 each) to complete a full prototype
Your pledge will help to get paraplegics walking again
Thanks in anticipation
