A bespoke suit to support independence
Yoga teacher Sunny Jacobs is very familiar with the pain and restrictive movement caused by problems with the spine. Sunny has Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and a spinal injury, both lifelong conditions.
“My suit helps with everything I have to do, it supports me when I’m sitting, helps me to stand more easily and even though I use a walking aid it gives my shoulders support, so they are less tired at night and pain free. I even wear it for my yoga practice. I am more limited in my ability to do yoga now but in the suit, I can do more than I could without it.”
Sock orthosis gives David independence
David has been using the DMO® Custom Dorsiflex Sock for over four years. The sock orthosis helps him lift his foot, improving his balance and movement issues due to Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
In David’s case the condition causes drop foot, a muscular weakness that makes it difficult to lift the foot enough to allow it to clear the ground when walking. This can cause the foot or toes to catch resulting in trips and falls.
“The seemingly simple issue of not being able to lift a foot causes me to fall, lose balance and drag my leg. The DM Orthotics sock orthosis goes a long way to resolving all those issues.”
