RHN launches #technologymeans for Brain Awareness Week

Charity hopes that digital campaign will help improve awareness of the role technology can play in helping those with brain disabilities to communicate

The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) is hoping that this year's Brain Awareness Week will help it raise awareness of its efforts to use technology to help give disabled adults a voice.

The charity has launched a digital campaign to help promote its work in the field, and demonstrate how electronic assistive technology can make a difference to people's lives.

As part of the #technologymeans campaign, the RHN has created a film which follows the assistive technology team as they adapt technology like iPads, smartphones, laptops and computers. The films are available below.

"Where I might use my tablet to do my weekly online shop, it can give a patient at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability their voice back through eye tracking and speech synthesis apps," said Sarah Myers Cornaby, director of fundraising at the RHN. "Our new film has been designed to use bespoke, device specific endings, mirroring the way in which technology is adapted at the RHN, to give patients the best chance of regaining their independence."

The charity is also hoping to turn the frequent verbal battles between Apple and Android fans into funds. Towards the end of the week, the charity will be analysing which group of users has given the most generously.

According to the charity, the campaign is designed to help put the role of technology into the picture of how it is able to help those with brain disabilities tell their family they love them.
