About Woody. Chris Wood is a former professional rally co-driver having been with works teams for Ford, Peugeot and Volkswagen, sitting alongside (among many others) Jimmy and Alister McRae, Martin Rowe, Jonny Milner, David Higgins and his great friend, the late World Rally Champion, Richard Burns. Chris has four children and is now residing in sunny Huddersfield.
What he needs.Chris is desperate to regain full arm movement and this may be possible using Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) equipment. FES is the most up to date and effective rehabilitation technique and may help his aim of being able to lead a more independent life. He also needs an electric wheelchair, hoists and other items.
OUR TARGET FIGURE. We are required to put a target figure in for this campaign but there is no target. Chris is still a young man and has many years ahead where equipment and physio will have to be paid for. We put in £40,000 as a number and have been blown away to have passed that. We need all we can get!
These are just examples of what he will need (some of which we have now bought thanks to you!)
Tailwind Wheelchair. Next-generation powered wheelchair with one touch operation for tetraplegics.
Functional Electrical Stimulation machine to rebuild core muscles.
Batec Electric with tetraplegic controls. Motorcycle like adaptation for manual wheelchair with long-range capability.
ANY contribution or help towards this cause will be very much appreciated.
