The Story

Our daughter Connie was born with a congenital heart defect in March 2019. At three weeks she underwent successful surgery to make a temporary repair and was able to come home from the Evelina Hospital, London. In August 2020, my wife and I decided to agree for planned surgery for her which was intended to extend her life until we could find a heart donor. Unfortunately Connie passed away due to complications after the surgery, in November 2020. Whilst in hospital, I watched how challenging it was to take a sick child and help them sit upright for play. After her passing I came up with an idea to improve sick children's play and posture by designing a cot-based chair which would enhance their quality of life post-surgery. A first concept and prototype has been completed and we are beginning a second prototype in 2024. The hope is to create enough chairs that would be used by the 22 children's hospitals up and down the country and the 55 Children's Hospices.
