Challenge

As the disease progress, disability of PD patients increases and quality of life deteriorates. In advanced stage Walking cane becomes essential. Experience shows that as the disease progresses from one stage to the other, even strong PD patients start to deteriorate quickly and start to expect support of walking aides and/or human care givers for movement from one place to the other. This is the reason to propose this cane supply project.

Solution

Patients will keep balance while walking in the absence f their care givers or even their presence. This will help them from falling down and damaging their body parts. Patients self esteem will improve largely. They can go to social interaction places with this walking cane.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train and deliver walking cane to 100 male & women allowing them to walk properly keeping balance. This will create intrinsic satisfaction for patients and their families. The quality of life for PD patients will improve. Community respect will also improve.
