First training in the Mini-Clinic

Lydia, the disabled student at the AvTech academy, has her arm brace set every night, exercises every morning and 'remoulding of her brace' about every 4 to 6 weeks.

This is an ideal teaching opportunity. Lydia, always with a smile, is a happy subject and ready to be prodded and practised on. Yesterday we demonstrated the moulding of the new arm brace (and we can see the progress over the first one already!)

The environment of the mini-clinic is much more conducive to learning and much more hygienic than the old method of using the briefing room table! Now, it is a privilege to have such a fantastic facility and to be able to use it to up-skill others on a daily basis.

Our thanks go to Dr Dieter and Ute in Germany for having put together the bracing programme for Lydia and to Palmer Chiropractors in Iowa for developing the physical therapy exercises with us.

Once again, the international input to our daily lives takes our breath away. We look forward to your involvement in the coming years!
