Unlocking people with locked-in syndrome
Paul Trossèl is living with locked-in syndrome due to a severe brain stem stroke. Yet, he has managed to take control of his life again, even without a voice. Femke Nijboer has investigated locked-in syndrome for several years. Both met through a research experiment. A friendship developed and they feel the need to tell the world that society should focus on ability rather than disability.
