Welcome to my website!

What is LaesieWorks? In Dutch somebody who has a spinal cord injury has a "dwarslaesie" and can be called a "laesie", which is kind of funny because it sounds exactly like "lazy". So yes: I have a spinal cord injury, since December 23 1995, at the age of 26. I am almost completely paralyzed since, can only move my head... Yes that totally sucks, and after all these years it is still not ok, it will never be ok. I suffer every day, but I don't like talking about that much.

Thus, there is nothing I can do, ..or is there? Well; I can not even scare away a fly from my nose, so what can I do?? But my mind is not broken. In 1995, computers became useful and soon after the internet became a thing, so the question was: how can Giesbert get good access to a computer? Felt like mission impossible.

Many thanks still, to all friends and family that gave so much support the first years after the accident. They even organized a huge benefit concert to get me a good computer and head controlled access to it. Thanks to all of them I could finally do work on the computer, create laesie works!

This website is made with headmovements only! I started LaesieWorks a year after the accident in 1996, with just 3 pages. By now I lost track of how many pages there are!

LaesieWorks are works in progress -always, never done.
So it can be a bit messy on my site!

I am in the process of adding a new part to my website: SuperChair. I am going to build the wheelchair that I always needed, but didn't get, because it doesn't exist. There will be a version that can fly! -no joke.

Do I search new people for my care network?
No, not at this moment.

Here's my design for a better future.

Project SuperChair
An electric wheelchair is more then a chair with wheels. To me it is like an important part of my body. For 23 year now, my life has been limited and suffering because of wheelchairs that are clearly not designed by people who need such a wheelchair themselves. I am now going to design my own SuperChair, and set a higher standard!

Spinal Cord Injury - Repair!
How to survive while being almost completely paralyzed? When will we finally give enough priority to research on how to repair this terrible thing?! What is broken can be fixed!

Photographs made in my first life, and in my second life. Since 2006 I'm able to make photographs without using my hands.

Identified Flying Objects, Disc shaped aerospace VTOL crafts (no UFOs). It's mainly about propulsion, as new propulsion technologies are key to more successful air and spaceflight.

Drawings made in my first life, and in my second life. Since 1996 I draw with head movements, using KeyStrokes and a HeadMouse.

Thoughts of mine, about reality and how to progress in a positive way. And other subjects.

Het Persoonlijk ZorgNetwerk, is een project dat ik gestart heb ter verbetering van de kwaliteit van de zorg-thuis. Dankzij de hulp van velen is het idee grotendeels gerealiseerd en beschikbaar voor iedereen in Nederland.

Het negatievenboek van opa Henk
Toen mijn opa Henk overleed, kwam ik in het bezit van een boek vol met oude negatieven.

Inventions, well, it seems most often someone else had the same idea already, but maybe one day I might be the first!
