Brain injury awareness week in Australia is fast approaching, taking place between 15 August 2011 and 21 August 2011.  David Robinson, a Solicitor who specialises in brain injury compensation claims, notes the work of a particular healthcare provider promoting a useful service.

Tunstall Healthcare has a 24 hour response service with care sensors. Brain injury survivors are able to make use of sensors which monitor if they have a fall, meaning that assistance can get to them quickly. Given that brain injury survivors often experience problems with balance and coordination this is a excellent initiative.

Speaking about his experience in handling brain injury claims, David said: “Brain injury is a hidden disability. Brain injury survivors often appear to look like anyone else, but the reality is that they often have significant problems for which they need support and assistance. I hope clinicians and care providers will continue to think of such new and innovative ways to support brain injury survivors”.
