Craig from Essex is 31 years old and has been confined to a wheelchair since the age of 13. He has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which is a progressive and life limiting condition. With several other charities we funded a Levo Combi wheelchair for Craig. He uses the chair for standing up, reclining, for stretching his hips and legs, to adjust position to optimise respiratory function, reduce pressure sores and support other bodily functions.
Craig is now able to get out and about, instead of being housebound. He comments: “This has given me back my independence and improved my quality of life. I can now drive my chair with ease, and this has improved my confidence”.
