Hollywood Meets MS
Who would have thought I’d be preparing to begin training with an Iron Man prototype, Lokomat. Lokomat is a cutting-edge, robotic machine used to assist patients who cannot or struggle to walk. The goal of this amazing machine is to retrain the central nervous system and learn to walk again. Do I hear Amen to that?!?
I’ve really been struggling with my walking for the past year. What I used to take for granted now is a daily challenge. Focused walking, striving to apply what I learned in PT with, how do I put it? Frustration some days! But, there’s always good news…options!
I am forever grateful for my PT, Jen. Her never-ending care and concern for her patients just warms my heart! She continues to recommend options that might help. My difference maker! Be educated and enjoy the Lokomat in action at Bryn Mawr Rehab. Feel free to ask any questions you might have!
I’m certainly not a super hero with a quest to crush evil. I am an advocate for myself, valuing the tools and potentials available to crush my gait challenges and strive to walk normally again. Stay tuned…
