How cool is this?
And only $5000! (not counting delivery from the UK, VAT and all other associated fees.) These devices, and their other amazing machine, the Boma 7, would totally change the quality of life not only for me but for countless others:
I’m not suggesting that the government or anyone else should buy this for me or anyone. Just wondering how any disabled person could possibly afford such a luxury. Check out more of their innovative stuff HERE.
And a few things from my in-box:
“Peter K. Stys of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, University of Calgary, argues that while the majority of the medical research community currently approaches MS as an autoimmune disease (much like Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis), for which the trigger is the immune system attacking a particular part of the nervous system, the features of the disease are equally well explained by approaching MS as a neurodegenerative disease (such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s), which is followed by an immune reaction to damage.”

How about this:
“A new treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) that resets the patient’s immune system was found to be safe and well tolerated in a small trial published in Science Translational Medicine this week. And, although not designed to test the effectiveness of the therapy, the trial also showed promising results in this area.”
