Ataxia – Marisol improves with BalanceWear

Posted on December 5, 2012. Filed under: Ataxia, Balance-Based Torso-Weighting, Falls, Video Stories | Tags: , , , |

Marisol is a 4 year old girl diagnosed with ataxia. Before BalanceWear, her parents say she had a very difficult time keeping her balance and would fall 7-8 times a day, often hurting herself and ending up in the emergency room.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTyc_eDzkEo&list=UUApZX-0NOFentcTAv9-xp3A&index=1&feature=plcp  After the trial you see in the video the therapist ordered BalanceWear.  Marisol started wearing  BalanceWear in August and now wears it every day. These days, Marisol only falls about once a day and is doing very well. Her father states that she can stand still and look around. She used to keep moving because she couldn’t find her balance. She is able to run with her playmates, crawl up and down the stairs to the slide, and use her fork better. She enjoys wearing BalanceWear. Her therapists note that after wearing BalanceWear she was able to stand and use both hands during tasks. Previously she had to lean on the table  in order to use her hands. You go Marisol! Keep up the good work.

When we can help children at a young age we hope that they will continue to improve.
