How do people’s brains work?

Everyone has a brain and everyone has a slightly different way of using it. We all interpret and imagine things in different ways. This is one of the essential characteristics that defines the human race - that and opposable thumbs. By and large, our ability to do this has taken us out of the food chain.

The way we understand and take information in can often become confused, for example when writing this article Tom misspelt brain and for three quarters of the first draft it became brian. It was only when he read again about an over developed brian that he twigged.... in fact he does have an Uncle Brian who has an overdeveloped hatred of seagulls. This is a digression.

Someone whose brain is far too over developed (not Uncle Brian) made us aware of this article:

If you can’t be bothered reading it, it is in summary a very interesting article about how as the result of a stroke the brain can become so muddled that every day actions like a making a cup of tea can become impossible. This is not because the person in question doesn’t understand what a cup of tea is, what it looks and tastes like, but the sequence of putting the teabag in the cup, boiling the kettle, then pouring the hot water, then the milk has become confused in their brain. Other examples include making the bed or dressing oneself.

A brand new technological gizmo is developed to give sensory reminders to the brain as to what order everyday actions go in. We have been informed by the person with the over developed Brian, that this article has won an award.

As an award winning business ourselves, it got us thinking about how our rise and recliner chairs are a great example of technology that can work to similar effect. The ability to get to your feet from a sitting position, a movement that is normally taken for granted, can cause total frustration. It’s good to see technology still being developed to find answers for issues that can often be overlooked. One day, who knows, Fenetic may be selling the new gizmo. It sounds as if it could come in handy.

In-house news....

Cars seem to be the current issue at Fenetic. Office Princess's clutch on her rust bucket had fallen off. Warehouse mechanic Al has now sorted it. Tom and Graeme’s Mobility Fun Bus failed its MOT but that too is now sorted. The Fenetic Fleet is back. Stay alert.
