Motor Neurone Disease (MND)
About Motor Neurone Disease
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.
MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order.
Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help you achieve the best possible quality of life.
The best wheelchair for MND is one that maximises independence, voice and choice - and now Ottobock has you covered.
In collaboration with the MNDA, Ottobock have developed the new B400 Neuro Power Wheelchair, a power wheelchair specifically designed to provide the best possible quality of life for someone with MND.
A200 Power Wheelchair
The Ottobock A200 Powerchair is also suitable for MND.
The compact and robust entry-level model in the Juvo B4 product line features a modular design and offers a great deal of flexibility, both indoors and outdoors.
Motor Neurone Disease Association
The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on MND care, research and campaigning.
