I go to the International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice in NYC for treatment , MRI’s etc… I see Dr. Andrew Slyvester MD. and Dr. Stephen Kanter, PT, DPT, ATC. I was blessed by having the opportunity to put on the BalanceWear Assessment Device to aid in walking. I could not believe how much better I felt. My gait came in, I was able to get up and sit down with greater ease. Cognitively, I didn’t have to concentrate with certain movements that always needed my main focus so not to get hurt by stumbling, tripping, or just losing my balance. My confidence level was dramatically altered for the better.
I do not understand the “whys” the vest had such a “quality of life” effect on my being yet. I know this is something very special and can touch so many more people with MS and other neurological and physical disorders. I can only imagine the effect this will have on children and others who suffer with disabilities of all sorts. Parents are going to see their children smile in a whole new light!
I have a 15 year old daughter who may not be so embarrassed by her father’s disability. Even though she says she is not. I remember my parents dropping me at the mall or school in a “not so cool” car!!. Maybe that’s my issue and insecurity!
Either way I know this is a medical miracle that is going to better serve all those who are effected by a disability in one form or another. Care takers, care givers, Moms and Dads sisters, brothers and family members ranging from aunts to uncles to cousins are going to be touch in a positive atmosphere.
Thank You Ms. Cindy Gibson-Horn for discovering, developing, manufacturing and hopefully marketing this non- drug alternative to medication for all of us who are touched directly and not directly by a disability. To all those people who are standing behind Ms. Cindy Gibson-Horn and believe and support her in her research, my sincere gratitude which words are unable to describe is overwhelming at this time. Thank You is so not enough. If I had a million dollars, I would give it to her and all that are involved in this miracle.
With heartfelt admonishments,
