I just completed an exhaustive, unbiased series of tests of different types of cooling vests that folks at TIMS may find helpful. The results were pretty surprising. Hope everyone stays cool this summer.

WalkAide use at 2 years

It has been about two years that I have been using the WalkAide. Overall, I am satisfied but it is no magic bullet. When I’m not tired, the WalkAide has alleviated my foot drop and the hyperextension of my knee. My gait is good enough to have eliminated knee and hip pain (that was bringing tears to my eyes). I can tell I have increased strength in my calves. I no longer feel like there ...

WalkAide indicator question

According to the WalkAide User Manual (page 9 and 10), the red light, above the triangle, indicates a low battery or error signal. I have changed the battery and the red light remains on and also continues to blink. It isn't sounding/alarming though. Does anyone know what this means?

Chronic Pain and pain pump

I had a pump implanted on 10/5. My doctor claimed that I would get my life back free of taking oral pain meds. So far, over a month, and I have little to no relief from the pump. My doctor doesn't want me back on the orals b/c she figures I've already detoxed from them. I have extensive chronic pain in my left leg. She put Dilaudid in my pump about 2 weeks ago, and ...

Baclofen Pump (medtronics itb therapy)

I had a Baclofen pump implanted on 10/5. I am still swollen and balance is off at times. I almost feel drunk. I had the doctor lower the dosage medicine but I am not sure if I have seen "the benefits" of the pump. I had the stiff leg for years and was managing well.
