help for client with MND with poor control of neck muscles
(posted by Susan Iwanek)
Philip Watts of the West Midlands panel has asked for advice/assistance on a current case. His client is a lady suffering from Motor Neurone Disease who is losing control of her neck muscles. The family have a wheelchair accessible vehicle, but there is a concern about using it because the client’s head requires support. The local NHS Wheelchair Service have not come up with a solution and the panel have been asked to assist. They note that there are obvious safety issues and would welcome advice from any of the other panels if they have tackled this problem before.
If you have any thoughts on this subject, please post them below and/or let Philip know by email. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
