As you probably already know, everyone here at ASI are huge advocates of independence. We’ve built our business on and dedicated our lives to helping individual with quadriplegias achieve independence in their lives. Perhaps this is why stories like the one below touch our hearts:
(Unfortunately, King5.com removed the story from their website.)
Talk about independence – whoa!!! This group of paraplegics and individual with quadriplegias had the opportunity to go indoor skydiving thanks to the Determined2Heal Foundation. From the looks of things, everyone had a blast! How many of you are brave enough to try it?
Seeing individuals who are individual with quadriplegias due to spinal cord injury or debilitating diseases such as MS and ALS enjoy the freedom of flying is truly incredible. We, too, work every day to improve the lives of individual with quadriplegias. There is nothing more gratifying than walking into the home of a individual with quadriplegia and installing a custom environmental control unit designed to give them the freedom to control their surroundings. Or, knowing that our signature autonoME environmental control unit/speech generating device is being used in hospitals and Veteran’s Administration Spinal Cord Injury Units across the United States to help individual with quadriplegias become more independent.
Do you or a loved one have an inspiring story of independence to share? If so, send us a quick e-mail or give us a call. We would love to feature you on our website and even possibly write a press release or story about your adventure!
