Spino Cerebellar ataxia SCA6

Posted on July 26, 2012. Filed under: Cerebellar ataxia | Tags: , , , |

Two days after Rolynn was fit with BalanceWear her ability to do a heel shin coordination test was better. She could feel improvement in her walking. She packed her bag and placed the BalanceWear device in her suitcase. She relayed to me that her ability to walk through the airport was easier for her than when she arrived. I kept in touch with her via email and texting. On one communication she relayed to me she was able to walk across the grass now without feeling so unstable. She would wear BalanceWear for two to four hours per day the first few weeks. She reported many things were easier for her including texting! She reported her body was keeping some of the information from BalanceWear. Interesting and exciting!  By week four she felt like the BalanceWear orthotic was a bit heavy for her. She returned to see me on week six with her mother and aunt…..to be continued:-)
