Spatial awareness


Richard Spencer is 61 years old and is paralysed from the chest down. He uses a power chair to get around and has full-time care to support him to be independent and live an active life.  In 1980 Richard was driving home for Christmas when he had a road traffic accident that left him fighting for his life and in a coma for five weeks. When he regained consciousness he was transferred to Stoke Mandeville Spinal Centre for over seven months’ rehabilitation. Listen to Richard talk about how important spatial awareness is to him when using his power chair.
