Interesting study on the benefits of mobility devices for Parkinson’s patients. As a person who experiences Dystonia in the feet it is extremely disabling when it occurs making mobility impossible. A mobility scooter for example would not provide a solution as the pain wouuld make controling the chair impossible.. I have been unable to find any specific device to aid mobility for foot Dystonia. A silicon metatarsal sleeve and wrist sweat band over the toes enables walking by it’s effect of somehow tricking the brain and controlling the claw effect. Also walking on tip toes somehow tricks the brain to not claw the foot providing mobility. Have thought this might be a case for the development of a high heeled shoe to povide mobility for Parkinson’s patients with Foot Dystonia. Are you aware of any mobilty device or development work towards a mobility aid for foot Dystonia?
