Inspirational Performance From a Double Amputee

13 08 2012

Working in an industry that deals with Mental Health and Personal Care and Assistance, we were overwhelmed with emotion when we saw Oscar Pistorius compete for South Africa in the 4×400-meter relay in the Olympic games. Since 11 months old, he was a double amputee, being born without a fibulae.

Moments like this are inspirational to all of us, especially us here at Advantec Information Systems. We care deeply about the facilities that we provide software to, most of which work with patients who have disabilities similar to those of Pistorius. We do, however, strive to make the word “disability” non-existent. With the proper amount of drive, determination, and help from great facilities around the world, disabilities will cease to exist and people can achieve their wildest dreams.

A report in USA Today interviewed other persons with disabilities who were also in the crowd at the 2012 London Olympics, specifically there to see the man with “carbon blades” race in the relay. One man who lost his leg seven years ago in a motorcycle accident was quoted saying “The whole part of recovery is adapting to whatever you’ve got to deal with. When you see what he does, you think anything is possible.”

Physical health workers around the world took Pistorius’ feat as an opportunity to help their patients. One doctor who has been working with amputee victims encouraged all of her patients to watch Pistorius race. She was quoted saying “He’s a big story. Just for people to be able to see that one of our patients was able to swim was very inspirational to them. So to see somebody reaching such an elite athlete status is incredible.”

Not much in life can be done alone, but with the right attitude and proper treatment facilities, anything is possible. Technology is growing at an exponential rate, and with it the once cemented barriers of society are being shattered. We at Advantec want to provide each facility with the easiest, simplest, and fastest way to manage your business. When you spend less time worrying about paperwork and tracking, you can spend more time with your patients.

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there.
