Bosses say it gives the charity the chance to showcase its facilities to a wider audience
Disabled children can now take a 360-degree virtual tour of a Bromley charity’s state-of-the-art physiotherapy centre from their own homes.
Virtual reality media company BLUR Three Sixty uses a 3D camera and specialist software to map internal and external spaces and create tours for events, construction, architecture, schools, nurseries, hotels, bars, clubs and holiday villas.
Now it has donated its services to the Freddie Farmer Foundation in Elliott Road to give the charity the opportunity to showcase its services and facilities to a wider audience.
Charity officer Karen Smith said: “BLUR Three Sixty have provided us with a fantastic 3D scan of our physiotherapy centre giving new families the opportunity to walk through our centre and see all the equipment we use.
“It’s amazing, we love it. Now people can experience what we do and view our facilities first-hand without having to set foot in the Centre. It’s great for those who live further afield.”
Business owner Neil Ferguson, who lives in Petts Wood, added: “I wanted the charity to show off its facilities to people who might not be able to just ‘pop in’ and visit, plus international clients.
“The Freddie Farmer Physiotherapy Centre offers excellent services and this is demonstrated by how far people travel to get treatment.
“BLUR Three Sixty wanted to give them the opportunity to show off their services and facilities globally.
“My son Jack has cerebral palsy and attends the centre and every time he visits we see improvement and a boost in his confidence.
“Jack loves all the staff and it’s like a holiday camp for him, even though he is worked hard.
“The centre is amazing and sometimes it can be hard to explain the facilities, layout and equipment used by the skilled physios.
“All the staff and fundraisers do an amazing job for the children who visit the centre, including my son Jack. I wanted to give something back and hopefully help the centre.”
