Low country mom Nicole Tassone is walking easier by using modern technology to help with her MS or Multiple Sclerosis as it’s called.
Nicole is a wife and mother of two who was an avid tennis player until an accident in 2005 prompted her to go to her doctor. After many months and several misdiagnoses she was finally diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
Nicole was determined to live her life as normally as possible. MS is not fatal but does severely change your way of life. Nicole used canes, walkers and even a scooter chair to get around then. Today she still uses those things but also uses the Ness L300 to help her.
The Ness L300 is designed to help with conditions like “footdrop” which is caused by conditions like Multiple Sclerosis. Footdrop happens when the patient gets so tired that their foot will not lift. The Ness L300 stimulates the foot to lift making it easier for a person with Multiple Sclerosis to get around.
Nicole says that the Ness L300 helps her to be able to stay on her feet longer. This allows her to everyday things like cook, clean and participate in her sons sports activities. Before using the Ness L300 Nicole says she used to stumble and drag her foot a lot. The device has really helped Nicole with the mobility aspect of dealing with MS.
When asked what advice Nicole would give people with Multiple Sclerosis she responded “Just keep moving.” That’s all you can do is stay mobile, go on with your life and make the best of it.
