Today has been an amazing day. Through many trials and tribulations I have seen a miracle today.I have been trying for many years to get my daughter to swim and it has proven very challenging and near impossible.
After 15 minutes of wearing the suit, the therapist asked Harlie to lay down so he could check the progress on her left arm as she still has some spasticity in her shoulder inhibiting her from bringing her arm completely over her head while keeping it straight. He moved her arm quite freely but I still wasn’t convinced. I asked if I could try moving her arm myself. Oh. My. Goodness. As I moved her arm above her head, I burst into tears. Her arm felt 100% free of spasticity. It felt very much like her legs did straight after SDR surgery.
After having the Mollii suit on for only one hour, I was bouncing all over the place – I was unstoppable. I was really delighted and surprised to find I had the confidence to run, and run I did. I can now go up and down the front step normally.
I can now walk up three flights of stairs to my appointment, pain free, without holding onto the rail.
