Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder of the central nervous system that can impair a person’s motor skills, speech, and other mobility functions. Symptoms may include tremors (shaking), slowness of movement, difficulty with balance, loss of coordination, speech changes, and rigidity (stiffness) of muscles and limbs. In the more advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease, the person may experience a temporary, involuntary inability to move called a freezing episode.
There are now accepted methods to combat freezing episodes – using motor stability exercise and life-changing devices that help overcome the symptoms on a daily basis. Active Forever offers several products designed specifically to help break freezing episodes, including the U Step Walker Advanced Walking Aid, the U Step 2 Walker Laser Light, and the Laser Cane.
