An appeal to buy some new technology for Kettering General Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is gaining momentum.
The hospital has raised £8,000 towards its £20,000 Intensive Voices Appeal target since its launch in March.
So far there have been a series of fundraising and awareness raising events and individual donations.
The Appeal s aim is to buy assistive communication devices similar to that used by world famous scientist Stephen Hawking.
These enable patients to communicate by using their eyes as a virtual computer mouse to type messages using shortcut symbols – on a computer screen which then speaks their message out loud.
