An American nonprofit has launched an interactive website to help find the right mobility equipment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients.
CureDuchenne announced the “Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Guide” to help caregivers navigate the best equipment for the various stages of their loved ones needs.
Debra Miller, founder and CEO, of the organisation, said: “With a commitment to supporting the Duchenne community with best practices in care until a cure is found, we are thrilled to offer the online DME Guide to families.
“While parents and caregivers are determined to find the equipment that will help keep their loved ones active in any way possible, we are determined to help them make the best decisions by providing them with all the resources they need in one place.”
CureDuchenne’s online DME Guide will be updated regularly to provide current information on equipment utilised by individuals living with Duchenne.
The site includes information on mobility devices, orthoses, home equipment and respiratory devices.
Additionally, the site features helpful links and downloadable information about equipment and proper use, and educational videos about equipment use produced by CureDuchenne.
