Nine Months in Coma

Nine Months

Nine Months

Marek cannot see and moves with difficulty. However, this did not stand in his way in studying philosophy and sociology. What is more, he is planning to study yet another degree. His new electric wheelchair, worth PLN 11,000, will certainly help him in this new endeavour. On seeing Marek clicking away, a layman might think that Marek is just playing around and pressing random buttons. However, nothing could be further from the truth. “It is my Braille notebook,” explains Marek. He is dressed smartly in a white shirt and green suit. He is sitting in his wheelchair, holding the device in his hands. He never parts with the device and always has it with him. “It allows me to keep notes up to speed. I used to use a voice recorder, but transcribing everything was a pain,” he says. Quick recording is really handy.
