PARKINSON’S DISEASE

In this category, we look at how to help patients living with Parkinson’s disease using adaptive equipment. Parkinson’s is a degenerative disease that affects the central nervous system such that one does not produce dopamine. This affects this motor skills and they will have tremors, imbalances as well as trouble walking.

We will look at diets that can help such individuals, adaptive tools that they can use as well as cbd oil to alleviate anxiety and insomnia.

Feeding for People with Parkinson’s Disease

When you have PD, hand tremors make it hard for you to eat or drink with ease. Every time you try to pick some food from your plate using a normal spoon, the tremors attack you and you end up pouring almost all the food. Drinking tea is no better. And this indeed does suck. That is why we will be reviewing some of the adaptive utensils for Parkinsons such as the gyenno spoon as well as cups for hand tremors.

Cloths for People with Parkinson’s disease

People with Parkinson’s disease have limited dexterity owing to the tremors. They will therefore require adaptive clothings that are fitted with magnetic buttons which help them with ease in opening and closing.

They also suffer from anxiety and stress and that is why we have reviewed compression vests for adults with Parkinson’s disease. What the weighted or compression vests do is that they help the patient feel calm as though they are receiving a heavy hug from someone who truly loves and cares for them.
