Over the past year I've had the opportunity to experience the power of sports for people with disabilities. In August we submitted our first SBIR research proposal related to adaptive sports with our partners at Lakeshore Foundation. Keep your fingers crossed -- we're breaking new ground on helping people who have quadriplegia to exercise. --Tom
This week we lost a Safe Laser System pioneer and friend to our research team. Merle sustained a brainstem stroke 12 years ago and was the first person to use a prototype of our Safe Laser technology. He and his wife taught us and encouraged us more than they ever knew. Dr. Beukelman, our long-term collaborator on this project, said it well in his remembrance of Merle "we will remember him and you [Merle's wife] each time the Safe Laser System changes the life of others who wonder how they will now live with severe disability." I hope you'll watch the video above of Dr. Susan Fager (Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital) and Merle as he learned to move using the Safe Laser System, and remember that it is only through the generous hearts of our clients that we have any chance of making life better for people with severe disabilities. Thanks Merle.
