38 year old Hilal Bisan joined the Israel Prison Service to follow in his brother’s footsteps after he was killed in the Carmel disaster. Hilal was severely injured in a shooting incident which took place in the Rimonim prison in 2014. Currently, Hilal suffers from pain in his damaged left leg, lack of control of his hands, and walks with crutches.
Challenge #2: To hold objects over longer periods of time.
As a result of his nerve injury, when Hilal holds objects for a period of time he experiences a feeling of ‘pins and needles’, which results in his hand opening involuntarily and the objects falling out of his hands.
Hilal is seeking a solution which will enable him to hold objects over time without fearing they will fall.
