Hendricks has a great dad! Hendricks is now learning to walk using a walking frame but where he lives is particularly sandy so to encourage his son to reach his full potential, Nation has built his son a runway.

Compacted with sand and a little bit of cement, this is the perfect space for Hendricks to easily stroll up and down.

This isn’t the first time that Nation has built something for Hendricks. There’s a dedicated therapy area including parallel bars, a wooden pull up ladder and even a swing so he can strengthen his core muscles.

It’s great to see Nation’s passion to create simple yet effective rehabilitation devices for Hendricks and we’re keen to encourage other parents in similar situations to be as creative.

We look forward to sharing more updates on Hendricks’ progress later in the year.
