  • Questions on equipment helping Machado-Joseph Disease

    Hi,
     
    Does anyone know who is doing research in equipment helping Machado-Joseph Disease patients to cope with falling? Walker is not very helpful for patients who fall backward. The use of a wheelchair may speed up the dependence on equipment without using the leg muscles.

    Or, is there any existing or similar equipment that can help with the condition?
     
    Thanks!!
