STRONGBONES CHILDREN’S CHARITABLE TRUST 27/03/17 KIDZ TO ADULTZ MIDDLE

Kids to adults in the middle show

On Thursday 16th march 2017 I whent to Coventry Ricoh arena to the kidz to adultz middle exbition .

I found out loads of stuff that is benifisul to me and my life in the future.

Most benifichol stall for my future-I found a stall with information about Portland colledge , I spoke to a lady called Sophie, I told her what I wanted to do and she was very helpful she told me how to apply and go for a look around to see if I like it and if the course is right for me. I felt good about talking to Sophie and discosing my future options.

Most benifichul for indpendnce-

A man on the stall Smart Wheelchairs Limited spoke to me about a speshlised wheelchair that would help me to be indpendnt. The wheelchair has lots of speshul fetures like seat elavator to make the chair go up and down so I am able to rech things above me , tilt of 50 degres to give my body a change of position , better suspension so it does not hurt if I go over a bump of a doorway frame .Its got a speshul back rest that reclinse that chair to a lade down position, a power leg rest that moves backwords and forwads and up and down to change the position of my legs and feet to make me more cumftibul . All of these things work from the controler, so I am able to change my position my self. The controler has a digitul display so it is esier for me see it , it works threw blue tooth so I can link my phone to it. It is a smart chair so I can conect uther things to my controler to control my envirament.

The seat cushon can be speshaly made for me so I don’t slip down my chair as much. This means I could be more indpendnt and comftbul so I wudnt always need sumbody whith me in case I slip down my chair and need pulling up.

Benifichul to my home life-

The man at easylink uk stall gave me lots of informaton on how to make my house a smart home . This meens I would be able to control serton things in my house whith my voce. I would be able to speak to Alexa amazon eco and tell her to do things like turn tv on, lights on/ off, turn heting up, open/ close certens and blinds. This information was benifichul to me becose if I move out I would be able to live indpendntly.

  1. That is a fantastic summary of the exhibition Myles. With technology advancing every day, it would seem that the kids to adults transition can be made much easier. May I take this opportunity to thank you, for allowing me to follow all your adventures. I wish you every happiness for the future.

  2. I was a carer who had something similar he lived on his own and this made a huge difference to his life he had carers to dress him give him his meals but this allowed him to have more private time he used his mouth to operate the key board he could open close doors close curtains switch TV on off also switch lights on and off I really do hope you get this your life will be a lot better x
