29 May 2017 – Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disorder of the central nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.
Some common symptoms of MS include fatigue, visual impairment, spasticity – or muscle stiffness – and difficulties swallowing.
These symptoms can make completing everyday tasks challenging. Equipment to assist with things like dressing and eating, in addition to mobility support, can help people with MS to live more independently.
Visit us in store to talk about your individual needs and we’ll help you find solutions to support independent living with MS.
