LEXI is the graphics system invented and owned by Giles.

It was first used by Channel 4 in the UK and ABC Australia on the coverage of the London 2012    Paralympic Games.

It explains concisely and accurately the different disability/impairment types within a Paralympic
sporting classification and why they compete together.

Giving the viewer a shot of information to allow them to sit back and enjoy the sport – rather than wondering if it is fair.
LEXI uses the colours of traffic lights to indicate different levels of impairment.
