Colour pigments from Concrete Colour Systems were used extensively in an outdoor therapy area in Cairns, specially created to provide the required physiotherapy to a toddler with motor skill challenges.
The toddler, a three-year-old girl had Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Diplegia, and needed intensive gross motor skill physiotherapy. Her mother sought assistance for creating an outdoor therapy area that would allow her to provide the essential care from home.
The therapy needed to be delivered to the child in a comfortable and cool environment so that she could focus as she developed the confidence to walk independently from the car to the house with her walking frame. Five local companies generously donated their time and resources to this project.
To address the intense heat from the far north Queensland sun, it was decided, after consultation with PNQ Concrete, to use CCS Paperbark full depth pigment colour as an excellent way of ensuring a cooler concrete surface as it does not retain the intense heat that a raw grey concrete does.
CCS was delighted to be invited to assist and donated CCS Paperbark concrete colour pigment to the project.
Concrete Colour Systems received this gorgeous photo of the proud toddler on her first walk on her path. The little girl is now able to confidently walk from the car to the entrance of her house.
Concrete Colour Systems is thrilled to have been a part of her therapy and wishes her all the best as she continues to make progress.
