EXOSYM + CEREBRAL PALSY
Today is the last day of #cerebralpalsyawareness month & i didn’t even plan on having this video ready in time–how perfect! i hope you find this video useful, i had a lot of fun making it for you all! please feel free to share & tag your CP peeps!
Below are a few facts i want to share that didn’t fully make it into the video:
HOW DO I GET ONE?
-the application process costs nothing! it starts with you sending along a video of your gait & your medical history. if you are a good fit you will then need to provide a prescription & letter of medical necessity from a licensed physician/orthopedist. it is easy to do so but it may take a few weeks so have patience.
WHERE DO I GET ONE?
-the ExoSym Program is held only at Hanger Clinic in Gig Harbor, WA, USA but serves domestic & international patients
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
-while there are so many variables at play, the device is best suited for anyone over 4’10 & over 12 years of age. however, Ryan Blanck, ExoSym creator has fit someone as young as 8 years old with CP.
there are several individuals now with CP who wear the device (bilaterally, too!) and we all function differently in the ExoSym as time goes on. it has only been 1+ year for me so this is just the beginning!
no two bodies are alike–but if you are the least bit curious about it and want to take some stress off your body & become more mobile feel free to reach out to the clinic–all you can do is ask!
-for general Q’s or to see if you are a candidate, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website here.
