Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - In This Issue -

Mo­bil­ity and the in­de­pen­dence to move has al­ways been some­thing I’ve gen­er­ally taken for granted. Grow­ing up, I broke my fair share of bones; fin­gers, toes, feet, knee, lig­a­ment. The re­sult­ing tem­po­rary im­pair­ment would em­pha­sis what it must be like to loose phys­i­cal in­de­pen­dence.

It was com­fort­ing to know at least it wasn’t per­ma­nent. Thus, it res­onated with me when Ali (above) started telling me about what Mo­bil­ity En­gi­neer­ing do and the An­nual Ve­hi­cle Con­ver­sions Con­fer­ence.

When talk­ing to Ali I was re­minded of my Grand­dad after he had un­der­gone a dou­ble hip re­place­ment. He still con­tin­ued to work on the land, and I re­mem­ber, the hid­den winces of pain as he would get up or down or in and out of the ute.

A big thank you to all the work that Ali is do­ing to ed­u­cate Aus­tralian pro­fes­sion­als on mo­bil­ity so­lu­tions.
