Drop Support

Hello Everyone,

May name is Edwin Aragon, brother of Leslie Aragon who currently suffer's with LGS, Atonic, and Tonic seizures. One of our families biggest challenges in providing care, was supporting her during her drop attacks. In most cases we would respond fast enough, and in other cases, we couldn't be there in time, or we just couldn't get a good hold to help break her fall, often leading to injury.

My family and I designed a fall prevention harness to help us catch her more often then not, which helped reduce her injuries, but also giving us peace of mind that we had a much better advantage over her drop attacks.

I would like to know how many of you, who currently have this challenge, as we once did, would be willing to change how you provide fall support for the ones that need it the most.

I look forward to answering any question, and my post is simply to gather more information as how many families need a better fall support system.
