Tetra-ski: Advanced Technology at the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic



for me in the winter sports clinic is about helping our veterans discover their new abilities so many of them have funnel for injuries or invitations or other diseases that may have impacted I know MS or you know other diseases like that that it impacted their lives and they have limited their lives but when you bring them to winter sports clinic we allow them to discover new freedoms that free their mind body and spirit and every veteran I have talked to you that has been here they've expressed how the winter sports clinic has helped them go back home and transform their lives with their new courage confidence and just their new abilities that they've discovered new technology like this chair is coming in from the University of Utah rehabilitation center so thank you to everyone for making this possible hi there it's Jeff resolute from the University of Utah and this is the 2018 Tetris key is an electrically electric powered ski controlled with a joystick or actually with your mouth who is designed originally for individuals with very high levels of sweat or injury with no movement in their legs a trunk and even no bubbles in arms so completely independently control with just sips and puffs or just a little bit of joystick potion and you're good to go the traditional spinal cord injury patient with a higher level injury wouldn't have the freedom that I just experienced they would normally be in a city with a guy taking them down the hill that who's in control technology like this gives the power and control back to our veterans
