    Info

    Hi all I just thought i'd tell you a little about myself, I'm 50 years old i live in New Zealand, i have a wife and 3 dogs no kids, my wife is also disabled.

    I've been playing around with computer for 12+ yrs and learn some thing new every day.

    Some have seen my comments that i'm not that good at painting so i thought i'd show you how i do it, below is a pic of my at my laptop at school, and how i use my tablet.

    Marvelous!

    The computer has been a major boon to disabled people. Timing is everything. We're blessed to be in a world where we have computers and other technology.

    I look forward to your future paintings. Get your wife using this program too.

    I applaud your effort Cripster. Having worked closely with both disabled and elderly individuals extensively in the past, I can attest to the challenge you face, not from a personal point of view, but from a very close one. I am always amazed and humbled by those individuals who make the choice to shine instead of shutting down in despair. You are an inspiration. Hugs to ya man. Keep posting.
    Be well,

    The really crucial piece of modern technology is that Wheelchair controller!
    A New Zealand product once again.
    We've got a couple of those

    Technology has made life worth living for disabled people. Despite all the twaddle spouted by Politicians and Health Care Professionals* it's Engineering that has made the difference.

    Do other countries now bolt the term "Professional" onto every trade?

    Hey cripster, just out of curiosity, how do you move the stylus? Are you moving your hand, or arm or is it done by leaning your body around?

    My mom is an occupational therapist and has forever worked with people with handicaps of all kinds.

    She just attended a seminar on hands. I want to show her your setup.
