Check out our new chairs and standers, now being designed with removable growth panels to allow for at least four years growth. This is especially useful for kids we meet who are not able to access our equipment service easily, a very common issue! Well done to our wonderful team! Thanks to Gareth Brown for lots of other little pointers for our new and upcoming strapping systems and harnessing.

Lovely to have Madam Nancy, Head OT for the County come along with a group of final year OT students to spend time looking at our positioning equipment and so have a small teaching session with them. We wish them all the best in their finals!

We've really enjoyed hosting our first week long course in assessment design and fabrication of APT Cardboard Equipment for Persons with Disability. We are training OTs Physios and some parents of children with disability from 'SEP Special Education Profrssipnals' Nairobi , AMREF Africa and the Action Foundation Kenya, Nairobi. Great progress being made! It's great to network!

This is a week where our equipment prescribing & design team have been challenged, encouraged and guided more than ever. Gareth, an experienced equipment technician from England, just saw a video of ours and wanted to help. He didnt know me at all. He took unpaid leave and made his way here to us to help us in that area.


As he left today I couldn't even find the words into appreciate his input. With his guidance, I see a huge potential for us to continue to push the boundaries of our cardboard equipment further to create even more comfortable, supportive & functional positioning equipment for very special children and adults. So many ideas have been discussed and so much development made in a few days.


Every now and again, someone somewhere goes and does above and beyond what anyone else would do. It can only be God. Am grateful.

Our team have had a brilliant first day with Gareth from AAT GB who has very kindly flown out and volunteered with us for this week. He is an experienced complex seating technician and together, we hope to develop our methods for achieving moulded seating with local & economical solutions. So much to get through this week but we are hopeful!
