Medical Equipment

< Back to Resources

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a multisystem disorder affecting all body systems. Treatment often includes a variety of medical supports and equipment.

Getting credible information about what works and is appropriate to alleviate specific problems is vital. Whether you are looking at tools for patient care such as patient lifts and shower chairs or medical devices including options for breathing support, information about what is available, how well it works, and how difficult it is to obtain may save time and frustration.

Additionally, how difficult is it to obtain a letter of medical necessity and what support you can expect from a supplier is useful.
