An indo board, for those of you who have never seen one, is bascially a balance board, originally designed to improve surfing skills. It is an oval shaped piece of wood, which you stand on whilst balanced on a plastic cylindrical roller. It is the sort of thing you see in a circus.
Balancing on one of these is really hard, for most of us! For the client, well you can imagine ... and he isn't even naturally left handed.
He inspires me in every session we do. He never looks at one of the challenges I set him and says, 'I can't do that'. Nor does he think I should be locked up for giving such challenges. He patiently humours me and says, 'Yeah why not?'.
Every one of us could learn something from this client; his determination, his patience, his sense of humour and his ability to keep going everytime he gets a set back. For example it wasn't very long ago that he had to undergo further amputation in an already very short stump on his right leg. He only has inches of leg left, and yet his skill with his prosthetic leg is remarkable.
It just goes to show what you can achieve if you never give up...
