How can assistive devices help with multiple sclerosis (MS)?

ANSWER

Assistive devices are tools that can make life with multiple sclerosis a little easier. They help you with tasks like walking, dressing, and bathing, and help you use less energy. An occupational or physical therapist can recommend devices that will help you the most and teach you how to use them.

Always talk with your doctor or therapist before you use any assistive device.
