Assistive Devices and Mobility Aids
Patients with GNE Myopathy experience physical disabilities that may affect their balance, walking, and use of hands. With proper assessment from a physical or an occupational therapist, some of these devices may be appropriate for each patient’s needs.
Patients may need canes, walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, and orthotic devices such as ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) to assist with mobility. Our interactive Assistive Devices Presentation provides an evolving, patient-reported, and detailed description of items that are found to be helpful in day-to-day life with GNE Myopathy.
