About Me

I'm Theophilus Ackom a 26 year old Physiotherapist and graduated from the University of Ghana. With the help of Zidisha two years ago i was able to finance my school fees and also my thesis that lead to a successful graduation process. Currently a working physiotherapist and doing my possible best to give back to the community as Zidisha has always given to me.

My Business

As a member of the fast growing clinic and the first of a kind in Ghana that offers mobile physiotherapy to clients at the comfort of their home. JessDan Mobile Physiotherapy Clinic seeks to provide good and quality mobile physiotherapy services for our loyal clients. With the increasing rate of burden of carrying a disabled or impaired patient to the clinic and also the stress of being in long queue at the hospital. My team and I provide great and quality physiotherapy services to clients at their homes. Seeking to release burden on patients and on the limited health facilities available in my country being a developing country.

Loan Proposal

Recently, as a requirement for my field of study, I had to write a thesis and my choice of topic as a student physical therapist and owing to the increasing incidence of non-communicable disease, was to access the rate of physical inactivity among people in my community since its a major contributing factor to NCD's and to my surprise the result tends out a lot of individuals did not meet the recommended requirement. There was then a decision between I and a couple more of my colleges to further outreach the projects to further communities to the alarming rate of physical inactivity trends among children. This project embarking wasn't easy but was worth it with the help of the last loan given me.I wish to further sample a larger population size to perform this research on and this would mean a higher demand for more equipments and I write to this honorable lending team to help me help the community and to make awareness on the trends of physical inactivity and the likely implication for the country some years to come. Below are some more equipments that need to purchase and their prize ranges.

This equipment include;
A body composition monitor
Stadiometer
Blood Pressure (BP) Monitor

For now this are the basic equipment that would be required to at least be able to take the average BMI and weight of individual hence be informed of the kind of condition their values put them into.

With the help this loan, I would be able to purchase the above mentioned equipment.

Prices of Equipment;
Seca 213 Portable Stadiometer Height-Rod = $ 216.37 (856.83 GHC)

Omron Body Composition Monitor with Scale - 7 Fitness Indicators & 180-Day Memory = $ 77.47 (306.78 GHC) X 2
= $154.94 (613.56 GHC)

Omron Blood Pressure Monitor = $55.6 (220.18 GHC) X 3
= $433.68 (433.68 GHC)

The rest of the money would be put into organization of the programs.
Following the great success and impact of the first campaign, and also with the availability of this equipment I hope to impact a lot life and as a project.
