A severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) at the young age of 16 changed Nicole’s life forever. With only a 30% chance of survival, it was difficult to keep hoping for a positive future. Nicole managed to turn the severity of the situation into a passionate motivator to prove that she could overcome her injuries. She believes that healing from brain injury is about much more than anatomy and physiology, and her initiative of “Holding On To Hope” has been brought to life to assist others in reaching their highest potential.
People who suffer from brain damage have to deal with a number of challenges day in and day out. In order to maximise their functionality, it is crucial that they and the people around them are guided with the right tools and resources. Currently, there are several digital solutions that offer possibilities that contribute to the recovery of these people. These applications, however, do not offer the required ecosystem that supports the entire process from beginning to end in a guided way.
Together with the passionate spirit of Nicole, Lizard Global created “Retiink”. The mobile application has been designed to support the rehabilitation process and effectively manage memory and organisational issues after a brain injury. By regularly using this application, users can improve their memory and time management skills, collaborate with their support team, and keep up to date with helpful tools and resources to improve their overall brain health and reach their highest potential.
