I visited Ben today. 

He proudly showed me how he walks on his walking frame.

I (Koko) visited Ben today. 

What surprised me most is that Ben peddled down the wheelchair ramp at school, with very good speed control, without using the brake lever.

​​He was d...

Ben is a 10 years old boy, with paresis on his legs from CP. He used to walk with walking frame, but mostly on a wheelchair for these few months. Today is his 9th day with COGY. Here is the update from his mum.

Here is the report from Ben's mother.

"Tue 6th June

We have re-introduced Ben to his walking frame while in the classroom for half of the day (Koko's note: Ben used to use walking frame for almost all day at school, until a few month ago). He coped very well with this, e...
