“My DMO glove is the only thing I’ve found that has an immediate effect on an ataxic hand. I’ve been diagnosed with moderate ataxia which affects my coordination and hand control. The DM Orthotics glove stops my hand shaking (something for which my carers are very grateful since it stops them getting accidently hit!). It’s also made exercise much easier and made it possible to learn to cook. I was first issued a glove by the NHS but I was so pleased by the effect that I paid for my own afterwards. I’d certainly recommend anyone with ataxia to try them”.
Anna Cartwright – Janet’s Clinician
“Janet had a stroke in 2015 and her right side was severely affected. This impacted significantly on her ability to perform daily activities due to a tremor and reduced stability of her right upper limb. She was keen to gain a repeat prescription of a DMO glove in order to remain as independent as possible. She has found that wearing her DMO orthosis enables her to take part in daily activities such as controlling her electric wheelchair, using gym equipment and knitting, with greater confidence and control”.
“It’s the one thing I’ve found that works for ataxia.”
