Badg works three days of the week in the Spinal Rehabilitation Centre primarily as an "Assistive Technologist" which basically means he helps newly spinal injured patients get to grips with mobile phones tablets and IT in general without using their hands. He also has a small role in Patient Education which is a weekly series of presentations to the patients on key areas of living life with a spinal injury. Outside of these three days he does some web development work and IT consultancy for various companies in the area. Of his non-hospital work, he always says that a consultant is a guy who can read the manual faster than the customer!
His association with the INSPIRE Foundation started in 1993 as a result of falling off the steps when trimming the hedge and spending some time at the Salisbury spinal centre. He sustained an incomplete C6/C7 spinal cord injury. Badg is a frequent virtual visitor to the INSPIRE offices where he is also on call to assist with IT issues and training of the resident staff.
Badg lives with his wife near Wimborne and is a regular caravan user, quiz master, cooks a bit, races a remote controlled yacht weekly and follows Formula 1 Motor Racing.
