WalkAid Neurostimulator for Terezka
Terezka from Chrastava is eight years old, and her life did not start easily because she was born prematurely. She was born three months before her due date. 'I thought it was great because I could hug her sooner. I did not realize at that time that hugging her sooner is not the advantage,' says Terezka’s mother, starting her daughter's story. Today the two live together on their own.
However, the little fighter’s mother did not give up hope even though her medical prognoses were not too positive. Terezka started doing exercises with her mother, who continued trying to find another solution to improve the state of her daughter’s health.
Terezka carries on doing exercises and physiotherapy with her mother to this day. 'Twice a year, we spend two months in the rehabilitation centre; we do exercises at home on a daily basis, and due to two corrective surgeries and many hours of physiotherapy, Terezka is able to do many activities just like other children her age,' says her mother.
Thus, Terezka has improved very much. Her performance and abilities are somewhat limited, but she doesn't get discouraged. 'This teaches all of us to be patient and strong and to get up after each fall and go further,' adds Terezka's mother.
After trying the WalkAid neurostimulator, Terezka’s condition began to improve significantly. 'When we were offered the WalkAid, at once Terezka had fewer falls and like magic her body started to react to this stimulation aid by improving in general. And when you see her shining eyes after each success, you don't regret anything and you know that it makes sense,' says the eight-year old girl’s mother. However, this health aid is very expensive, so we want to work with you to help Terezka and her family.
