Countdown to Invictus

It’s nearly here, after an intense organisation period, the inaugural Invictus Games is due to open on Wednesday the 10th of September with an opening ceremony at 18:30 on the South Lawn of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

As part of the BBC’s coverage of the Invictus Games last night BBC2 aired an hour long program called Countdown to the Invictus Games: Meet the Warriors. The program put the spotlight on a handful for injured servicemen who will be taking part in the Games as part of the UK Armed Forces team. Particular attention was focused on Capt. Dave Henson and Senior Aircraftman Mike Goody who have both played key parts in the development of RTSIC projects such as Murr-Ma.

Bruise Suit on the BBC

Last Thursday/Friday you might have seen Dan and Ming from Team Bruise on BBC news demonstrating the Bruise suit with the UK Armed Forces Wheelchair Basketball team. As we get closer to the inaugural Invictus Games the Wheelchair Basketball team where in training at the Stoke Mandeville stadium in Buckinghamshire. Dan and Ming went along to present the suit and to see what the reaction was.
