Father and Son

Due to an umbilical cord complication at birth, Rick Hoyt suffered from spastic cerebral paralysis resulting in stiff hands and feet. But for the past 37 years, Rick has accomplished some amazing feats with the help of his father, Dick Hoyt, and a specially made wheelchair. Now 52 years old, Rick has participated in over 60 marathons, 230 triathlons, and more than one thousand long distance races along with his 74 year old father. Among all of these accomplishments, the most important one is the trust and encouragement built up between father and son.

In the school, one quarter of the students haveautism, so the two robot teachers help with students’ interactions and communication. In comparison with humans, robots are more accessible and easier for autistic children to understand as they have no expressions and no emotional changes. Additionally, the two robots can talk, play games, dance, and even give classes.

Like most Brazilians, ten year old Locus loves football. Unfortunately, Locus suffers from motor nerve dysfunction and right hand atrophy, making him wheelchair bound and even incapable of shaking hands with others.

Wanting to share his love of football with other disabled children, Locus and his father recently organized an electric wheelchair football team in Rio.
