Exciting news for Gary

Our CEO Dr Gary Allen does much of his work for the platform from bed (he is confined to bed for all but 5 hours per day and his progressive MS means that there are days he has to spend the entire day).  He tested a rough version of his new over-bed computer desk last Friday, which should be a great improvement and see him typing from a far healthier position.  Hopefully, Gary will receive his new desk by Christmas.  It is looking fantastic and will make a huge difference to his working environment when he is in bed. No, Gary, this won’t be a license to work more hours than you do already.

The desk ended up being funded by the NDIS, rather than the Job Access Network. There’s a lot more that could be said about that experience and Gary is in the process of providing that feedback to the JAN.  It also is a good example of knowing how to describe a purchase to the NDIS.

Gary will also be getting a standing wheelchair, with a head-brace, to go with his standing desk, which is very exciting and might see him spending more time out of bed.
