New Year Update - Busy Busy Busy
It's been a while since our last website post! We have been extremely busy in production, prototyping, fundraising and networking and had Christmas and New Year thrown in for good measure! So here is what has been going on these past few weeks!
1. LimbBo Stix
Unbeknown to our son Tommy, we had bought him a real drum kit for Christmas. He'd always loved banging around on his toy one so I thought this would be a nice if not noisy gift!
Since day one I have wanted to create a device that would enable limb different kids with short forearms to play drums with 2 sticks instead of being restricted to one. This idea was designed and came to life on Christmas Eve (last minute as per!) With no real idea if it would work or not, well it did, it worked very well!
This device is available on Thingiverse opensource now so anyone in the world can print one of these devices to help themselves or others free of charge :)
2. Adapted Bikes - Christmas Gifts
In our first official Trustee's meeting since we obtained charity status, we discussed the idea of being able to get 2 or 3 of our adapted bikes out there for children at Christmas. With the help of wonderful donations and delivery help for Bapp from Bolts we reached our goal and 3 limb different kids opened their bike on Christmas day. :)
