“The Balance of Life Regained”
Have you every watched a video or read an article that completely made you smile, even tear up at times? I recently did just that.
You know how much I value the benefits I received from my BalanceWear Vest. I really am so happy to educate anyone about how this vest could help them too. If my PT didn’t discuss this tool with me, you can rest assured I’d still be up close and personal with the floor, more than I’d like!
A family member recently began PT for balance issues, namely, falling and unsteady gait. I was excited to discuss with them that perhaps they just might have some relief with BalanceWear too. He asked his PT and was promptly advised, “he didn’t have leg issues so he wouldn’t benefit from the vest.” Needless to say, I professed, “False!” “You need to read their website!” **
Education and awareness is paramount! Frustrated with this response, I reached out to Cindy Gibson-Horn, PT, at Motion Therapeutics, who contacted Dad’s PT department. She was able to share the many benefits patients have experience with this amazing tool. She even invited the PT’s to attend a training seminar being held shortly at the University of Virginia. PTs in attendance will learn the necessary protocol to access and fit patients for BalanceWear, as well as, instantly see the benefits this vest can provides for most patients! Cindy is completely dedicated to helping patients be optimal. Refreshing, isn’t it? As a patient, do you get the sense that I’m forever grateful?
Allow me to share with you a patient whose life has been forever changed while wearing her vest. Donna’s Story: The Balance of Life Regained. You might want to grab a few tissues for your viewing pleasure. Her smiles and sheer joy will warm your heart too!
