Your support of robotic rehabilitation equipment will give patients new hope.
Literally overnight Craig went from an active man playing footy once a week, to being disabled. He’d gone to bed feeling dizzy and unwell. By the morning he could hardly talk. His face was paralysed and drooping on one side.
He’d had a stroke at just 56 years old.
“I was active, I never felt sick, so I never went to the doctor much,” says Craig. “It was a massive shock.”
As he recovered in hospital, Craig still struggled to speak. His left arm dangled down lifeless and still. He couldn’t even shower himself.
All that people want after a life-changing trauma or neurological diagnosis is to keep their independence. Robotic rehabilitation equipment funded by the Canberra Hospital Foundation is giving them new hope.
But we need your support.
