This is a fixed campaign

Pledges will be collected if the goal is reached.


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
